A practical, comprehensive approach to the major areas of social work with older adults
Social Work with Older Adults provides pre- and in-service social workers with a clear and engaging all-in-one resource for working with older adults. This practical and comprehensive text examines the basics of biopsychosocial functioning, the assessment of older adults’ strengths, and the design of both traditional and alternative interventions to treat a wide variety of challenges facing older adults. Readers are given the opportunity to practice the tools and strategies they need in the field through numerous case studies, discussion questions, and new integrated learning activities.

The 5th Edition includes a new chapter (13) that details the importance of community programs, as well as expanded coverage of culturally responsive practice throughout the text. New cases with discussion questions and new end-of-chapter integrated learning activities offer readers even more opportunities for practice.
