"Completely updated with references to recent literature, legislation, court decisions, and current issues, this is the third edition of a widely used resource for those practicing social work in the schools. It provides a conceptual framework for understanding social work services in educational settings, as well as broad coverage of educational policy and social work practice, and current topics such as pupil rights and dealing with violence. New to this edition is a broader ecological perspective, with more attention to the effect of federal reforms, poverty, multiculturalism, and prevention efforts. Lead author Paula Allen-Meares is well known as an expert on child welfare and working with children in the school system. "This book covers broad issues in education and the development of social work services in schools, including educational policy as it affects school social work practice, and how to plan, implement, and evaluate social work services in schools. In addition it includes new information on recent legislation and litigation, servicing disabled pupils, dealing with violence in the schools, and gay and lesbian youth; new material on the effects of welfare reform on children and their families; more material on diversity and its effects on social work practice in schools; and new topics such as school-linked services and the need to change systems within the school. This edition also includes more case material and examples to illustrate the concepts being discussed, and gives more attention to assessment, rating, and evaluation scales. For social workers and related professionals providing services to schools.
