"Specifically dedicated to the skills that social workers need to advance community practice, this creative book is long overdue. Grounded in the wisdom and evidence of well-honed interpersonal social work skills...Donna Hardina's new text takes community practice to a higher level than ever before developed in book form; indeed she displays the most thorough understanding of research on community practice that I have read in any community practice text."--Journal of Teaching in Social Work Community organization has been a major component of social work practice since the late 19th century. It requires a diverse set of abilities, interpersonal skills being among the most important. This textbook describes the essential interpersonal skills that social workers need in community practice and helps students cultivate them. Drawing from empirical literature on community social work practice and the authorís own experience working with community organizers, the book focuses on developing the macro-level skills that are especially useful for community organizing. It covers relationship-building, interviewing, recruitment, community assessment, facilitating group decision-making and task planning, creating successful interventions, working with organizations, and program evaluation, along with examples of specific applications. For clarity and ease of use, the author employs a framework drawn from a variety of community practice models, including social action and social planning, transformative/popular education and community development approaches, and multicultural and feminist approaches. The text is linked to the competencies outlined in the Council of Social Work Educationís (2008) Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS), as well as ethics and values identified in the National Association of Social Workersí (NASW) Code of Ethics, and the International Federation of Social Workersí statement of ethical principles. Most chapters begin with a quote from a community organizer explaining how interpersonal skills are used in practice, and student exercises conclude each chapter. The text also addresses other important skills such as legislative advocacy, lobbying, and supervision. Key Features: Describes the essential skills social workers need in community practice and how to acquire them Includes examples of specific applications drawn from empirical literature and the authorís experience working with community organizers Grounded in social justice, strengths-based, and human rights perspectives Linked to competencies outlined in EPAS and values identified in the NASW Code of Ethics Based on a variety of community practice models

Generalist Social Work Practice provides students with the foundational skills and knowledge needed to serve clients across micro, mezzo and macro areas of practice. Author Janice Gasker brings a focus on self-reflection as the first stage in the planned change process and writes with the perspective that we consider work at all levels of practice simultaneously rather than in isolation. In accordance with the 2015 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) set forth by the Council of Social Work Education (CSWE), the planned change process is presented as dynamic and interactive, providing students with a clear understanding of how each stage of the planned change process can be utilized at any point when serving a client system. The text spotlights the distinctive characteristics of the worker—their values, attitudes, and experiences—that may influence client interaction. The text also includes case studies, collaborative learning exercises, and critical thinking questions to help students apply concepts to practice.

Dorothy N. Gamble and Marie Weil differentiate among a range of intervention methods to provide a comprehensive and effective guide to working with communities. Presenting eight distinct models grounded in current practice and targeted toward specific goals, Gamble and Weil take an unusually inclusive step, combining their own extensive experience with numerous case and practice examples from talented practitioners in international and domestic settings. The authors open with a discussion of the theories for community work and the values of social justice and human rights, concerns that have guided the work of activists from Jane Addams and Martin Luther King Jr. to Cesar Chavez, Wangari Maathai, and Vandana Shiva. They survey the concepts, knowledge, and perspectives influencing community practice and evaluation strategies. Descriptions of eight practice models follow, incorporating real-life case examples from many parts of the world and demonstrating multiple applications for each model as well as the primary roles, competencies, and skills used by the practitioner. Complexities and variations encourage readers to determine, through comparative analysis, which model at which time best fits the goals of a community group or organization, given the context, culture, social, economic, and environmental issues and opportunities for change. An accompanying workbook stressing empowerment strategies and skills development is also available from Columbia University Press.

Diese Sammlung von Schriften aus der Zeit von 1970 bis 1990 des brasilianischen Pädagogen Paulo Freire (1921-1997) gibt einen Einblick in die Grundlagen und Prinzipien seiner Bildungsarbeit auf der Basis der Pädagogik der Befreiung. In den ausgewählten Texten werden nicht nur pädagogische Probleme und inhaltlich-methodische Fragen der Bildungsarbeit thematisiert. Sie enthalten ebenso Analysen und Bewertungen von Politik, Kultur, Religion, Ethik und Veränderungsmöglichkeiten von Gesellschaft - eine Erweiterung, die sich gegen eine Vorstellung wendet, Pädagogik sei von Gesellschaft und Politik losgelöst zu behandeln. Scharfsinnig hat Freire u.a. die verheerenden Folgen des Neoliberalismus für Individuum und Gesellschaft analysiert und zum widerständigen Denken und Handeln ermuntert. Eine Auswahl repräsentativer alter und neuer Texte von Paulo Freire: Wer sie zur Hand nimmt, entdeckt rasch, dass uns dieser brasilianische Pädagoge nicht nur für die Theorie und Praxis unserer Erziehungsarbeit, sondern für unser Überleben Entscheidendes zu sagen hat.

This guide promotes the use of analytical skills in community organization practice, including information gathering and processing, legislative research, needs assessment, participatory action research, political analysis, population forecasting and social indicator analysis, power analysis, program development and planning, resource development, budgeting, and grant writing,. These analytical methods, often used in practice but seldom systematically discussed, assist the practitioner in identifying community problems, planning interventions, and conducting evaluations. The text explicates a problem-solving model that identifies concepts and theories underlying practice, methods for problem identification and assessment, and techniques for goal setting, implementation, and evaluation. It features extensive listings of Web sites for community organization practice and is dedicated to the idea that the community organizer, to be truly effective, must be prepared to be an active learner.

Effektiver Altruismus

Eine Anleitung zum ethischen Leben

Wir alle haben schon gespendet. Doch geht es uns dabei wirklich um die Hilfe für andere? Oder wollen wir eher unser Gewissen beruhigen, ein wohliges Gefühl verspüren oder spendabel wirken? Millionäre lassen Kunstmuseen errichten, statt Verhungernden zu helfen, und Normalbürger geben Beträge, die nicht einmal die Bearbeitungsgebühren decken. Wer dagegen so viel Gutes wie möglich tun will, sollte besser auf seinen Verstand hören als auf seinen Bauch. Diese simple Idee ist Ausgangspunkt einer neuen sozialen Bewegung – des effektiven Altruismus. Peter Singer, einer ihrer Gründerväter, zeigt in seinem Buch, wie effektives Spenden möglich und warum es richtig ist. Gestützt auf harte Fakten und neue wissenschaftliche Methoden, können wir heute in vielen Fällen sagen, welcher gute Zweck der bessere ist. Gleiches gilt für die Wahl der Mittel: Auch hier orientieren sich effektive Altruisten daran, was den größten Nutzen verspricht. Um mehr spenden zu können, beschränken sich manche von ihnen auf das Allernötigste, andere geben gar freiwillig einen Teil ihrer selbst, etwa eine Niere. Effektive Altruisten sind aber weder Heilige noch Masochisten: Man darf sie sich als glückliche Menschen vorstellen. Singers Buch ist ein Aufruf zu einem in doppelter Hinsicht gelungenen Leben: Indem man für andere das Bestmögliche tut, gibt man dem eigenen Leben Sinn.

Working with people from diverse backgrounds requires a comprehensive toolkit of communication skills. It is easy to assume that communication skills are intuitive and universal, but communicating with service users with specific needs and issues requires a high level of professional skill. This book will help you to understand and harness these specialist skills to ensure effective social work practice. Based on the author's innovative teaching and award-winning research, this essential text provides a robust evidence base to support the development of higher-level interpersonal skills within a range of social work settings. It examines general communication techniques applicable to all social work practice, as well as exploring the specialist methods that you can employ when working with specific service user groups. Incorporating detailed transcripts, the book dissects the professional communication skills that lie at the heart of social work with those with particular needs including children, parents, asylum seekers, people who use substances and people with disabilities. In each specialist chapter, the author: ■ assesses the theoretical underpinning and policy context of the setting ■ draws on a detailed practice example to identify key communication techniques and micro-skills ■ interrogates the link between theory and practice, based on tried and trusted research ■ highlights the relevance of the skills discussed to national professional standards. Clear and engaging throughout, Specialist Communication Skills for Social Workers provides support for honing your skills both within classroom and placement environments, and is a key resource for individual portfolio development. It is therefore a core text for all social work students and professionals, from training through to professional practice.
