This book teaches social work students the basics of effective social work practice and helps them develop competence in assessment, intervention, and evaluation. Its broad coverage explores the counseling, case management, and research skills necessary to implement evidence-based practice in contemporary social work. A stand-out feature of this book is the innovative use of its appendices-particularly the comprehensive service plan that is incorporated throughout the text. The book incorporates a number of extensive case example with a step-by-step treatment plan that focuses on assessment, intervention, and evaluation illustrating the application of knowledge and skills discussed within the case situation. Professor O'Hare has long since been a leader in the field of evidence-based practice and uses his background experience to craft this second edition of Essential Skills. The book is DSM-5 ready, and illustrates the importance of using research to inform practice, while also using practice experiences to contribute to the development of evidence-based resources. This is the book that will serve as a foundational practice text for students that also functions as a bridge to learning advanced social work practices. Strengths of this edition: * Updated! Provides new literature on effective practices as well as changes reflecting modifications of the DSM-5 * Updated! Outcome literature and updated assessment material * Utilizes case studies with illustrative psychosocial assessments, interventions, and evaluation plans * Offers flexible structure to easily incorporate supplementary materials
