About

Overview

This practical text equips students with the fundamental information and skills needed to be effective case managers, covering such central issues as the responsibilities of case managers, the skills needed for effective case management, and the context in which case management occurs. To ensure that the book offers the most current and accurate information, the authors interviewed human service case managers nationwide about their jobs, their skills, the challenges they face, and the clients they serve. These interviews, combined with the most current research and numerous case studies, make GENERALIST CASE MANAGEMENT: A METHOD OF HUMAN SERVICE DELIVERY, 4th Edition, the most realistic and relevant text available. Available with InfoTracĀ® Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.

What's New

  • This edition reflects the current state of case management, with updated references and examples, a focus on strengths-based case management, a review of technological advances, and an emphasis on collaboration that embraces family, friends, and clients as case managers.
  • A stronger emphasis on diversity in its broadest sense-ethnic, religious, gender, and lifestyle-pervades the text, reinforcing today's need to consider each case management encounter as multicultural. Guidelines on topics ranging from a culturally sensitive medical examination to considerations of culture when taking a social history provide ways that case managers may assume a multicultural stance in each case management encounter.
  • Expanding the voice of the case manager in the text, each chapter now includes a "Thriving and Surviving as a Case Manager" section. In-depth quotes about issues and challenges faced by case managers interviewed in 2012 give students a realistic picture of the day-to-day work.
  • Ethical and legal perspectives now appear earlier in the text (in Chapter 4 instead of in Chapter 10), reflecting these topics' importance in case management.
  • Each chapter now includes a "Deepening Your Knowledge" case study with questions, designed to help students apply concepts to practice. In Chapters 8 and 10 the case study is embedded into the whole of the chapter, providing a continuous integration of content and practice.
  • Further supporting the book's real-world perspective, a new "Voices from the Field" feature in each chapter depicts current case management practices in the government, agencies, and private practice. Topics include culturally sensitive interviewing, OSHA guidelines for preventing workplace violence, and helper reactions to working with trauma victims.
  • A new "Want More Information?" section in each chapter asks students to conduct research on the Internet to further investigate current case management practices on a particular topic. For instance, in Chapter 11, students are encouraged to investigate natural disasters and how agencies respond to expanding human service needs.
