Community Services Intervention provides a comprehensive introduction to the theory, models and principles of practice for direct social casework. It introduces the history and context of professional practice, provides a step-by-step guide to the key skills, demonstrates how theory supports intervention processes and outlines how to work with other professionals to assist clients to achieve best possible outcomes. Reflecting the broad spectrum of casework settings and the need to take client diversity into account, it addresses: community care for the aged; people with a disability; people with mental health issues; acute health settings; injury management and insurance; correctional services; court systems; child and youth welfare; drug and alcohol work; at-risk populations in schools; managed care; and employment programs. With case studies, reflective practice questions, and templates for reports and assessments, Community Services Intervention is an ideal introductory student text.
