Relationship Skills in Social Work


Relationship Skills in Social Work


$32.62


This book considers the place of relationships in current practice and explores the ways in which social workers can use relationship skills to achieve the best possible outcomes for their clients. The book also offers a unique discussion of the social worker’s relationship with him or herself, arguing that self-awareness is as essential to good practice as an emotional understanding of the other. In doing so, the book promotes a new model for relationship-based social work, which emphasizes the importance of both the inter- and intrapersonal. Using reflective exercises and case studies, the book encourages students to relate the tools they have learnt to practice scenarios from the real world, and is essential reading for all qualifying social work students.



 AIDS Sexuality and Gender in Africa


AIDS Sexuality and Gender in Africa


$36.99


While there is a growing list of publications devoted to the AIDS epidemic, Africa, with two-thirds of the world’s cases, still receives scant attention. This book may change the way we think about AIDS and how it is being addressed in Africa and the rest of the world. The book draws on first-hand research and in-depth investigations carried out by a team of researchers from Britain, Zambia and Tanzania, and focuses on the gendered aspect of the struggle against AIDS. The authors study the severity of the epidemic and the threat it poses to the population and society in Tanzania and Zambia. They argue that the success of strategies against the spread of AIDS in Africa rests on their recognition of existing gendered power relations and that this success might be enhanced if the strategies are built on existing organisational skills and practices, especially among women. Their conclusions have repercussions for all countries around the world, and especially the rest of Africa.

 Autism, Therapy, and Fun: OT to the Rescue


Autism, Therapy, and Fun: OT to the Rescue


$20.54


Autism, Therapy and Fun; OT to the Rescue is a collection of engaging activities that are versatile enough for use with individuals or groups of mixed ages and abilities. It is intended for children with adaptive functioning levels in the two- to five-year-old range. The activities were developed to enhance skills that often challenge children with autism and other special needs including fine motor, visual processing, body awareness/motor planning, sensory processing, self-help, and cognitive skills. Children aged 2 through 17 years with autism, ADHD, sensory processing disorders, feeding concerns, Down syndrome, and speech-language delay have successfully participated in these activities. Each activity in Autism, Therapy and Fun; OT to the Rescue includes a Leader Guide, Parent Information Handout, and supplemental materials, when appropriate. The Leader Guide provides a list of materials needed, detailed instructions, and helpful hints. The Parent Information Handout explains the rationale, process, and skills emphasized, helping parents be informed members of the team. Supplemental materials such as templates, diagrams, and pictures are also included. “It is a child’s ‘job’ or ‘occupation’ to play in order to develop physical coordination, emotional maturity, social skills to interact with other children, and self-confidence to try new experiences and explore new environments” (www. aota.org, 10/4/2009). As pediatric occupational therapists (OT), we use this definition of occupation provided by the American Occupational Therapy Association to guide our practice. OTs infuse play with the opportunity to develop these skills, despite special needs or skill deficits. Children with autism often face overwhelming occupational challenges. “Autism is a developmental disability that affects how the brain functions, and often impairs social skills development and communication. Occupational therapy practitioners work collaboratively with the school team to

 Creating an Inclusive School, 2nd Edition


Creating an Inclusive School, 2nd Edition


$19.42


In this comprehensive resource on inclusive schooling, administrators, general and special educators, and parents explore how inclusive education can support a diverse student body at all grade levels. They show how schools can meet standards and provide a “least restrictive environment” for students with disabilities by using cooperative learning, teaming, multi-age grouping, multicultural education, social skills training, and educational technology applications. And they explain how to facilitate change by using universal design principles and other curricular, instructional, assessment, and organizational practices. The authors examine the prevailing myths and the most frequently asked questions about inclusive education, and they provide an extensive list of resources. Woven through the book are the personal stories of people with disabilities and the educators and parents who work with them. As their voices make clear, inclusion is more than an educational buzzword; inclusion is a way of life, based on the belief that each individual is valued and belongs. Richard A. Villa, Ed.D, has worked with thousands of teachers and administrators to develop and implement instructional support systems for educating all students within general education settings. Jacqueline S. Thousand, Ph.D, is a professor in the College of Education at California State University, San Marcos, where she coordinates the College’s special education credential and masters programs.
