In recent years, interest in non-Western curative techniques among Americans has grown by leaps and bounds. Integrative Body-Mind-Spirit Social Work is the first book to strongly connect Western therapeutic techniques with Eastern philosophy and practices, while also providing a comprehensive and pragmatic agenda for social work, and mental health professionals. This breakthrough text, written by a cast of highly regarded researchers from both Asia and America, presents a holistic, therapeutic approach that ties Eastern philosophy and practical techniques to Western forms of therapy in order to help bring about positive, transformative changes in individuals and families. Integrative therapy focuses on the mind-body-spirit relationship, recognizes spirituality as a fundamental domain of human existence, acknowledges and utilizes the mind's power as well as the body's, and reaches beyond self-actualization or symptom reduction to broaden a perception of self that connects individuals to a larger sense of themselves and to their communities. Here, the authors provide a pragmatic, step-by-step description of assessment and treatment techniques that employ an integrative, holistic perspective. They begin by establishing the conceptual framework of integrative body-mind-spirit social work, then expertly describe, step-by-step, assessment and treatment techniques that utilize integrative and holistic perspectives. Several case studies demonstrate the approach in action, such as one with breast cancer patients who participated in body-mind-spirit and social support groups and another in which trauma survivors used meditation to get onto a path of healing. These examples provide solid empirical evidence that integrative body-mind-spirit social work is indeed a practical therapeutic approach in bringing about tangible changes in clients. The authors also discuss ethical issues and give tips for learning integrative body-mind-spirit social work. Professionals in social work, psychology, counseling, and nursing, as well as graduate students in courses on integral, alternative, or complementary clinical practice will find this a much-needed resource that complements the growing interest in alternatives to traditional Western psychotherapy.

First published in 1974, Social Work Treatment remains the most popular and trusted compendium of theories available to social work students and practitioners. It explores the full range of theoretical approaches that drive social work treatment and knowledge development, from psychoanalysis to crisis intervention. This treasure trove of practice knowledge equips professionals with a broad array of theoretical approaches, each of which shine a spotlight on a different aspect of the human condition. Emphasizing the importance of a broad-based theoretical approach to practice, it helps the reader avoid the pitfalls of becoming overly identified with a narrow focus that limits their understanding of clients and their contexts. This sweeping overview of the field untangles the increasingly complex problems, ideologies, and value sets that define contemporary social work practice. The result is an essential A-to-Z reference that charts the full range of theoretical approaches available to social workers regardless of their setting or specialty.

Every fifteen seconds someone commits a crime of domestic violence in the United States, and most violators will be court-mandated to receive group treatment. Outcome studies of traditional treatment programs (those with confrontational or educational approaches) indicate high rates of dropping out and low effectiveness, lending urgency to the need to find an alternative method. This book describes a cutting-edge treatment approach that creates effective, positive changes in domestic violence offenders. Solution-focused therapy focuses on holding offenders accountable and responsible for building solutions, rather than emphasizing their problems and deficits. By focusing on "solution-talk" instead of "problem-talk," clients are assisted in developing useful goals and solution behaviors that are then amplified, supported, and reinforced through a solution-building process. The book will be of great interest to professionals and graduate students in social work, psychology, and counseling.

Sound HRM practices matter—they are a sine qua non of effective governance in democratic government—equally so at the local, regional, state and national levels of government. The NASPAA (Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration) accreditation standards demand critical competencies for public managers that are vital to human resource managers and supervisors at all levels. These competencies include: skills to lead and manage in public governance; to participate in and contribute to the policy process; to analyze, synthesize, think critically, solve problems and make decisions; to articulate and apply a public service perspective; and to communicate and interact productively with a diverse and changing workforce and citizenry. This second edition of Human Resource Management is designed specifically with these competencies in mind to: Introduce and explore the fundamental purposes of human resource management in the public service and consider the techniques used to accomplish these purposes Provide exercises to give students practice for their skills after being introduced to the theory, foundation, and practices of public and nonprofit sector HRM Facilitate instruction of the material by introducing important topics and issues with readings drawn from the professional literature Provide information and examples demonstrating the interrelatedness of many of the topics in public sector HRM and the trends shaping public and nonprofit management, especially diversity, ethics, and technology. Demonstrate and describe differences among HRM practices in public, for-profit and nonprofit organizations, and between the levels of government. Human Resource Management is organized to provide a thorough discussion of the subject matter with extensive references to relevant literature and useful teaching tools. Thus, students will consider the issues, purposes, and techniques of HRM and conceptualize how varied their roles are, or will be, whether a personnel specialist in a centralized system or a supervisor managing in one of the increasingly common decentralized systems. Each chapter includes a thorough review of the principles and practices of HRM (including the why and the how), selected readings, important themes, diverse examples, key terms, study questions, applied exercises, case studies, and examples of forms and processes would-be managers will encounter in their roles.

Living Through Loss is the first book to identify the many ways in which people experience loss over the course of life and to discuss the interventions most effective at each stage of life. The authors' starting point is that loss comes in many forms and can include not only suffering the death of a person one loves but also giving birth to a child with disabilities, living with chronic illness, or being abused, assaulted, or otherwise traumatized. They approach loss from the perspective of the resilience model, which acknowledges the capacity of people to integrate loss into their lives, and write sensitively about the role of age, race, culture, sexual orientation, gender, and spirituality in a person's response to loss. More than a comprehensive source on loss, the volume is distinguished by the authors' beautiful use of clients' experiences-and their own-thus making their book definitive and indelible.

The development of this inaugural Handbook of Oncology Social Work: Psychosocial Care for People With Cancer provides a repository of the scope of oncology social workers' clinical practice, education, research, policy and program leadership in the psychosocial care of people with cancer and their families. It focuses on the unique synergy of social work perspectives, values, knowledge, and skills with the psychosocial needs of cancer patients, their families, and the health care systems in which they are treated. It addresses both the science and art of psychosocial care and identifies the increasing specialization of oncology social work related to its unique knowledge base, skills, role, and the progressive complexity of psychosocial challenges for patients with cancer. This Handbook equips the reader with all that we know today in oncology social work about patient and family centered care, distress screening, genetics, survivorship, care coordination, sociocultural and economic diversity, legal and ethical matters, clinical work with adults living with cancer, cancer across the lifespan, their caregivers and families, pediatrics, loss and grief, professional career development, leadership, and innovation. Our hope is that in reading this Handbook you will identify new areas where each of you can leave your mark as innovators and change agents in our evolving field of practice.

TRAUMA TREATMENT - HEALING THE WHOLE PERSON Includes Reproducible Handouts! Non-assignable permission to reproduce clinician and client handouts in this manual for clinical use. Discovering Meaning in Life, and Tapping into our Resilience and Healing Capacities IN SPITE OF TRAUMA ... MEANING-CENTERED THERAPY combined with the TRAUMA TREATMENT FOUNDATIONAL PHASE-WORK (TTFP) Model is an integrative and multi-dimensional approach to the holistic treatment of trauma and traumatic stress. Through clinical, evidence-based, trauma-informed and meaning-centered interventions, clinicians and clients will learn how to address the various bio-psycho-social-spiritual symptoms and effects of the aftermath of trauma and overwhelming experiences. Clients will be able to (1) Build safety, stability, regulation & flexibility, (2) Significantly reduce/eliminate trauma response symptoms, and (3) Increase engagement with others, life & meaningful goals. "Drs. Marie Dezelic andGabrielGhanoum havecreated a comprehensive and innovative manual for the meaning-centered treatment approach to heal past trauma. Their work and approach are commendable; their ability to convey it to other clinicians is superb." Amir Levine, M.D., Co-Author of ATTACHED: The New Science of Adult Attachment and How it can Help You Find and Keep Love "To categorizeTrauma Treatment - Healing the Whole Person asa conventional "manual" would only marginalize its inherent value as a supportive resource for all people experiencing life transitions, whatever they may be. Informed by Viktor Frankl's System of Logotherapy and Existential Analysis, and guided by their own innovative model of meaning-centered trauma treatment, Drs. Dezelic and Ghanoumaptly demonstrate howfinding meaning in life-under ALL circumstances-is both within us, and within reach. Importantly, it is along this pathway to meaning where the healing process ultimately takes place and where wholeness in spirit, mind, and body can be found." Alex Pattakos, PhD, Co-Author of Prisoners of Our Thoughts: Viktor Frankl's Principles for Discovering Meaning in Life and Work; and The OPA! Way: Finding Joy & Meaning in Everyday Life & Work "The paradigm shift in the traditional treatment model is currently upon us; the idea behind living a fulfilling and authentic life is paramount in the therapeutic community and addiction industry. The missing links are self-actualization, self-transcendence, and meaning in the everyday experience when talking about recovery and sobriety. Dr. Dezelic and Dr. Ghanoum providea clear and concise trauma training platform for professionals across disciplines where meaning is woven throughout all of the interventions." Cali Estes, PhD, Author of The Recovery Coach Workbook "How do we heal from the pain of traumatic events? How do we survive in the face of unavoidable suffering and loss? Once again, Dezelic and Ghanoum have developed innovative, colorful and informative Conceptual Pictographs to illustrate their model of recovery. TTFP is flexible enough to be appropriate for individual and group counseling, as well as for self-exploration. This manual is an invaluable addition to the treatment plan for clinicians dedicated to helping trauma survivors heal from and discover meaning in the face of tragedy and sorrow." Ann-Marie Neale, PhD, Diplomate in Logotherapy, Editor of Meaning-Centered Therapy Manual: LTEA Brief Therapy Protocol for Group & Individual Sessions; and Meaning-Centered Therapy Workbook: Based on Viktor Frankl's Logotherapy & Existential Analysis"
