Synopsis

Social Work and Health Care Policy, Practice, and Professionalism by Joan M. Borst

Written with a strengths based perspective, this health care text integrates policy, practice, and professionalism for social workers. With its focus on diversity and by using a biopsychosical perspective, Social Work and Health Care emphasizes a variety of ways of coping and ways to culturally assess and approach intervention. Readers learn about how the individual, and their families and friends are impacted by the loss of health or independence. Numerous examples encourage students to identify with the practicing professional.
