School Social Work: Practice, Policy, and Research, Sixth Edition is a comprehensive guide to social work practice in schools. This edition includes new chapters on confidentiality, mental health issues, attendance, personal safety, and child welfare. Case examples and policy and practice applications support the strong emphasis on issues of diverse populations in the book. Updated chapters cover IDEA 2004, the No Child Left Behind Act, the accountability movement in education, diversity issues, and the changing economic, social, and political climate for schools in the 21st century. Specific practice applications for new or experienced social workers are covered throughout the book, but are emphasized in a special section (thirteen chapters) that covers group work, work with families, attendance, case management, working with the child welfare system, social skills training, violence reduction, crisis intervention, and peer mediation.
