This comprehensive school social work text discusses major issues confronting education, and practice directions for the design, delivery, and evaluation of school social work services. This edition features a broader ecological perspective, with more attention on the effects of federal reforms, poverty, multiculturalism, and prevention efforts. The Fourth Edition 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.
