Working with Involuntary Clients PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Working with Involuntary Clients free pdf How do you help someone who has no interest in being helped? Social workers face particular challenges when working with involuntary clients who may be resistant or even openly antagonistic to the offer of assistance. This book provides a practical guide to effectively working with individuals and their families in such areas as corrective services, child protection, mental health and residential care. Chris Trotter's pro-social model shows how it is possible to work in partnership with involuntary clients and reconcile the two sometimes conflicting aspects of the role: the legalistic and the helping. Throughout the book the focus is on direct practice with guidance on clarifying roles, promoting pro-social values, dealing with issues of authority and establishing goals based on integrated, systematic and evidence-based approaches. Illustrated throughout with case examples, Working with Involuntary Clients has established itself as an essential guide for social work and welfare students and as an invaluable reference for professionals. This third edition has been fully revised and updated and includes new material on cognitive behavioural strategies and risk assessments.
