Handbook of Social Work Practice with Vulnerable and Resilient
Why do some people collapse under certain life conditions, while
others remain relatively unscathed? What accounts for the marked
variations in people's responses to stress and adversity? The
second edition of this groundbreaking how-to guide has been
extensively updated to reflect the field's growing understanding of
the importance of resiliency and protective factors -- the positive
poles of the human experience -- and the importance of their role
in forming balanced assessments and responsive interventions.
Individual chapters explore such problems as AIDS, chronic
physical illness, depression, addiction, homelessness, divorce, and
abuse. This new edition goes beyond the pathology explanatory model
to stress such factors as courage, coping, and resourcefulness, and
includes new chapters on such topics as crime victims and victim
services, the death of a parent, gay and lesbian persons, single
parenthood, and women of color.
