Case studies on sexual orientation and gender expression in social work practice
Columbia University Press, Aug 30, 2006 - Political Science - 114 pages
This casebook focuses on sexual orientation and gender expression in relation to social work practice. An excellent resource, it offers 29 cases illustrating the variety of issues facing gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) people and communities in five practice settings-individuals, couples and families, communities and organizations, groups, and policy and research. The book also contains discussion questions, classroom exercises, and suggested readings for each case, so educators can easily integrate GLBT content into the classroom. "Case Studies on Sexual Orientation and Gender Expression in Social Work Practice" may be used on its own, in conjunction with another textbook, or as a complement to Deana F. Morrow and Lori Messinger's "Sexual Orientation and Gender Expression in Social Work Practice: Working with Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender People" (Columbia, 2006). Messinger and Morrow are award-winning teachers and their groundbreaking book is key for culturally competent undergraduate or graduate courses in practice, policy, human behavior and the social environment, research, and field education.
