Description - Social Work Practice and the Elderly by Michael J. Holosko
The third edition describes significant practice issues and challenges facing gerontological social workers, working with the fastest growing demographic cohort in North America. Insightful and creative practitioners provide current accounts and case examples from their work in a variety of settings. The material includes both micro and macro practice and offers a focus on advanced specialty practice while also providing an advanced generalist model. All the chapters have been rewritten and updated by adding related additional readings and websites. Six new chapters have been added on sensory impairment, HIV/AIDS, elder abuse, community-assisted living, rural elderly, retirement, and volunteerism. "Social Work Practice with the Elderly" offers an exciting collection of well-crafted readings and will be useful for any social work student at the undergraduate or graduate level. It will also be a valuable resource for those in other helping professions who work side by side with social workers in this field: nurses, physiotherapists, music and art therapists, psychologists, physicians, recreational therapists, speech and language therapists, and clergy.
