This practical guide for social workers presents systematic and streamlined techniques for helping clients resolve their problems. It includes a comprehensive, A-to-Z set of task planners for more than one hundred psychosocial problems encountered by human service professionals. Each entry includes a menu of actions the client can undertake to effect resolution; a clear, step-by-step guide to the practitioner's role in facilitating these actions; and a list of references. The book also contains a glossary of common procedures used by human service professionals and a comprehensive reference list.
The Task Planner addresses such issues as:
-- Anxiety (including obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and panic disorder)
-- Domestic Violence
-- Elderly Clients
-- Sexual Abuse
With the task-centered approach, clients are actively involved in reaching their own solutions or coping mechanisms -- both on their own and in treatment sessions -- giving them a sense of empowerment.
