This book is for those who "work in the trenches" of child welfare and family services. Caseworkers often go into the worst situations and have insufficient time to make effective interventions. By applying the principles of brief, solution-focused therapy to family-based services, social service workers can deliver treatment that is cost-effective, humane, and empowering to families. For professionals unfamiliar with the theory and concepts of brief therapy, Berg describes the process in a step-by-step fashion. She gives clear guidelines on what to cover in assessment interviews, how to talk to clients so they will listen to you and feel heard by you, how to conduct yourself in a client's home, what to do about dangerous situations, and how a solution-focused approach can be adapted to a variety of service programs. Case examples illustrate different techniques, and sample assessment forms are included, which can be adapted to different agency needs. Workers can engage clients in productive problem solving by concentrating on what clients do right, rather than what they do wrong. With this book in hand, workers have a useful tool for empowering families.

There is mounting interest in services to strengthen families and, if possible, to keep them together, preventing unnecessary and costly out-of-home placements. Unfortunately, although these programs are proliferating throughout the country, many are developing without the benefit of existing historical, conceptual, and scholarly data, information needed to make sound fiscal policy and programmatic decisions. This book fills this critical void, with a systematic examination of home-based services for abused, neglected, delinquent, and emotionally disturbed children and their families. With the most authoritative research on the topic to date, this book will be of interest to practitioners, policymakers, and child advocates.

In Pennsylvania, a commitment has been made, on a statewide basis, to serve these children and strengthen their vulnerable families through a home-based approach grounded in ecosystemic thinking and practice. This book tells the story of Pennsylvania's evolving treatment program, providing a model for other professionals who believe that a family's needs are best met through individually tailored, family-centered, community-based, culturally competent, and outcome-oriented services. This is a complete, comprehensive guide, covering everything from planning and development of home-based services through supervision and training of home-based practitioners and evaluation of treatment outcomes. Particular attention is given to the clinical challenges faced by home-based therapists working with families where children are depressed and perhaps suicidal, oppositional and defiant, out-of-control and aggressive, or hyperactive/impulsive. These families commonly have multiple problems, complex histories, and a negative view of outside "helpers." Delivered in the family's home and involving parents as partners, the services described here work to improve child and family functioning through family therapy, creation of collaborative links between appropriate community and family resources, and provision of family support funds for concrete services such as transportation, respite care, and emergencies. Home-based treatment serves both children at risk for out-of-home placement due to a diagnosis of severe mental illness or behavioral disorders and children being discharged from inpatient hospitals and psychiatric residential placements. The authors, active at every level of program conceptualization and implementation, share their wealth of experience with readers. Their advice and case studies move from the big picture to the small details of where to sit in a family's home, what to say, and how to think about a problematic situation. Several appendices of forms used for assessment, evaluation, and training add to the book's practical value. Theoretically sound and fully practical, this guide to home-based services will encourage all professionals serving children to involve their families and communities-and to meet them where they live.

Service providers are increasingly called upon to serve clients at home, a setting even a seasoned professional can find difficult to negotiate. From monitoring the health of older populations to managing paroled offenders, preventing child abuse, and reunifying families, home-based services require models that ensure positive outcomes and address the ethical dilemmas that might arise in such sensitive contexts. The contributors to this volume are national experts in diverse fields of social work practice, policy, and research. Treating the home as an ecological setting that guides human development and family interaction, they present rationales for and overviews of evidence-based models across an array of populations and fields of practice. Part 1 provides historical background and contemporary applications for home-based services, highlighting ethical, administrative, and supervision issues and summarizing the social policies that shape service delivery. Part 2 addresses home-based practice in such fields as child and adult mental health, school social work, and hospice care, detailing the particular population being treated, the policy and agency context, theories and empirical data, and practice guidelines. Part 3, the editors present a unifying framework and suggest future directions for home-based social work.

Learn to interact with families in ways that promote family functioning when a family member is dying. Family-Based Palliative Care is an insightful book that aims to increase professionals'understanding of the family as client. Authoritative contributors who are experienced in working with the terminally ill present the most current theory, practice, and research related to family-based care of hospice patients. Each readable chapter includes a wealth of information that can be applied to health care settings in which holistic care is a priority. The first chapter presents a conceptual framework for caring for families of the terminally ill as well as clinical examples that are used to illustrate the application of the framework in practice. Experts describe four research studies--two qualitative studies that examine sources of stress for caregivers and identify the resources used by families to manage at home; a methodological study that explores the positive and negative aspects of family caregiving; and a case study that evaluates a hospice staff s efforts in providing family- based care. Because little research has been done with family caregivers of terminally ill hospice patients, Family-Based Palliative Care will be essential reading for nurses, social workers, hospice staff, and other professionals whose job it is to care for the dying and their families."
