Overview

Child and Adolescent Treatment for Social Work Practice: A Relational Perspective for Beginning Clinicians by Teresa Aiello

Introducing social work students to all the treatment issues they will handle in private practice, agencies, clinics, and hospitals, this textbook teaches the basics of social work practice with children and adolescents.

Unusual in its coverage of topics that affect both young children and teenagers, it explores all the major therapeutic issues and treatment options, including group, play, and family therapy. Chapters cover post-traumatic stress, learning disabilities, physical illness, and delinquency and anti-social behavior, divorce and single-parent families. Dr. Aiello weaves in crucial issues such as poverty, AIDS, bicultural issues, sexuality, and sexual orientation. The theoretical discussions are clear, and the detailed case examples offer actual dialogue rarely seen in child therapy texts. Child therapists, graduate social work students, and guidance counselors will all find this an invaluable guide to their chosen occupation.
