AUTHORS: Summers, Nancy - ©2009
Work through the case management process with this helpful text/workbook that guides you directly from the classroom to success in today's social service setting. The step-by-step practical skills found in Summers' FUNDAMENTALS OF CASE MANAGEMENT PRACTICE: SKILLS FOR THE HUMAN SERVICES, Third Edition, focus on what's most important to consider, document, and pass along within each step of the human service process. Helpful tips and practice scenarios help you develop the skills and abilities to make good decisions and contribute to meaningful discussions in a professional setting. This edition's chapters clearly discuss each step of the case management process--from intake through termination--with an emphasis on additional ethical and practice issues with more examples. Numerous realistic exercises, drawn from the author's more than 20 years of experience and from the first-hand experiences of other active professionals, prepare you to deal with a broad range of circumstances and difficulties. Actual agency forms give you opportunities to compile and work with information as you manage cases and prepare client files. This textbook will remain a useful reference well after your classroom experience. An additional reference tool, the author's FUNDAMENTALS FOR PRACTICE WITH HIGH RISK POPULATIONS is also available with information on specific high risk populations you may encounter, such as survivors of rape and violence, those with drug and alcohol dependence, and individuals with mental illness.
