School Social Work: Practice, Policy, and Research, seventh edition, is still the most comprehensive guide to social work practice in schools. This edition includes a greater emphasis on evidence-based practices and an enhanced focus on diversity. Two new chapters address the history of education of African American children and important policies regarding work with vulnerable groups in the United States. School Social Work maintains its extensive coverage of contemporary topics, including the No Child Left Behind Act, the accountability movement in education, and the changing economic, social, and political climate for schools in the 21st century. Case examples and policy and practice applications support the book's strong emphasis on group work, work with families, attendance, case management, the child welfare system, social skills training, violence reduction, crisis intervention, and peer mediation.
