Transforming Social Work Education: The First Decade of the Hartford Geriatric Social Work Initiativeby Nancy R. Hooyman
Written as the John A. Hartford Foundation Geriatric Social Work Initiative (GSWI) celebrates its 10th anniversary, Transforming Social Work Education reviews the initiative's individual programs and its impressive effect on social work education. With chapters written by leaders in the field, the compilation also presents the overall marketing and resource advancement strategies developed by the GSWI programs plus valuable lessons learned related to mentoring, faculty scholarly development, curriculum change, implementation of competencies, community partnerships, and institutionalization of change that are relevant to all social work educators. Faculty and academic administrators in all specialty areas will find useful parallels for their own work in the book's examples of how aging has been embedded in almost all aspects of the social work education enterprise.
