Description

Although the vast majority of LGBT persons are healthy, resilient, and hardy individuals who do not seek social work intervention, some have been or will be clients in social work agencies. The third edition of Social Work Practice with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender People updates this classic text and expands its scope to include new content on social work with older and younger LGBT people. Written by a team of highly experienced experts, this book provides a knowledge base for practice that will better prepare students and practitioners for working sensitively, competently, and effectively with LGBT individuals and groups. Comprehensive and practical, this unique text discusses the pragmatic aspects of social work with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. It will improve and reinforce competent practice with LGBT persons and their families in multiple settings. Chapters focus on important topics such as: * the profession's core values and ethical principles * social work and queer theory * LGBT and race-heterosexism, racism, and sexism * applying the life model and the stress-coping process * practice with bisexual, transgender, and gender non-conforming persons * traditional psychoanalytic notions of lesbian couples * the impact of sexual abuse on lesbian couples * internalized homophobia, heterocentrism, and gay identity * group work practice with the LGBTQ community * clinical assessment for families where sexual orientation is an issue * LGBT parenting * And new chapters on social work with LGBT young people and LGBT older people Complete with a highly detailed appendix of symbols, definitions, and terms, Social Work Practice with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender People, 3rd edition is an invaluable resource for social workers and mental health professionals as well as for students and educators at all levels of experience.show more
