Description


School Social Work: Practice, Policy, and Research has been a foundational guide to the profession for over 40 years. Featuring 30 readings divided into five parts, this best-selling text reflects the many ways that school social work practice impacts academic, behavioral, and social outcomes for both youths and the broader school community. The essays include selections from both pioneers in the field and newcomers who address the remarkable changes and growing complexities of the profession.

The ninth edition of School Social Work features a stronger focus on evidence informed practice and adds substantial new content related to antiracist practice and trauma-informed care. It retains the holistic model of school social work practice that has informed all previous editions of this cornerstone text, making it a relevant and vital resource for today's practitioners and students as schools grapple with how to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath.
