Summary

This is the third edition of Social Work Services in Schools, the leading text for courses in school social work. Lead author Paula Allen-Meares is the Dean of the School of Social Work at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. She is a well-known expert on child welfare and working with children in the school system. The text covers broad issues in education and the development of social work services in schools; educational policy as it affects school social work practice; and how to plan, implement, and evaluate social work services in schools. New to this edition is a broader ecological perspective, with more attention to the effect of federal reforms, poverty, multiculturalism, and prevention efforts. The revision offers information on recent legislation and litigation; servicing disabled pupils; dealing with violence in the schools; and counseling gay and lesbian youth. This edition also includes more case material and examples to illustrate the concepts being discussed.
