Undoubtedly an authoritative reference, Direct Social Work Practice: Theory and Skills is now on its 8th edition, offering more up to date examples and case studies that help readers understand the connection between theories and real-world situations. Hepworth, R.H. Rooney, Strom-Gottfried, Larsen, and G.D. Rooney peppered the book with helpful case studies (both from real-world practice and their personal experiences), along with clear illustrations that explain the main skills and theories that future social workers need to learn and master. Direct Social Work Practice: Theory and Skills (ISBN 9780495601678) offers an introductory discussion of social work and the challenges that surround the practice, as well as the domain, roles, and philosophy of direct practice. It covers communication (talking with authenticity and empathy), verbal following, and exploring and focusing skills. Other topics like eliminating counterproductive communication patterns and assessing interpersonal and intrapersonal factors are also discussed, along with social work groups. There are also chapters on improving family relationships and getting between social workgroups. The final chapters talk about the evaluation and termination phase. This textbook was written by an impressive author pool consisting of some of the most respected social work educators, including Dean Hepworth and Jo Ann Larsen, who were the originators of most effective ways and strategies to teach direct practice. Ronald Rooney is a respected professor at the University of Minnesota's School of Social Work, and is the author of Strategies for Work with Involuntary Clients. Glenda Dewberry Rooney is also an accomplished professor; she has lent her expertise to previous editions. Kim Strom-Gottfried is a professor at the UNC Chapel Hill School of Social Work and offers training and consultation in the field of private practice, managed care, and ethics.
