From the PublisherCarolyn Saari, Ph.D., Professor School of Social Work, Loyola University, Chicago, and Editor, Clinical Social Work Journal Educators and clinicians alike will find Short-Term Treatment and Social Work Practice to be both a very timely book in relation to current pressures for more brief treatment and very useful in its provision of an integrated perspective on this work. The book is an excellent text for beginners whether these are students or practitioners venturing into this modality for the first time.
Jerrold R. Brandell, Ph.D. Professor, Wayne State University School of Social Work Eda Goldstein and Maryellen Noonan have performed a great service to the profession of social work and its clientele. Their model, while remaining faithful to the guiding principles of social work practice, offers a vital approach to time-sensitive treatment in a professional climate transformed by the reality of limited resources and the dicta of managed health care. Destined to take its place among such brief-treatment classics as Perlman's Social Casework: A Problem-Solving Approach and Alexander and French's Psychoanalytic Therapy, this volume is essential reading for social workers at all levels of clinical practice.
Francis J. Turner, Professor Emeritus, Wilfrid Laurier University Doctors Goldstein and Noonan have produced a much-needed and critically relevant text of import for practitioners and educators. Short-term treatment, although highly popular, has lacked a firm foundation in theory, and a conceptually sound practice paradigm. This volume presents both. In addition it expands this practice format into a multi-modality base and addresses its application to specialized and challenging client groups in a manner that extends the efficacy of this important contemporary practice strategy.
