Reflecting the idea that social justice is a primary mission of the social work profession, this text provides a thorough grounding in policy analysis -- with extensive coverage of policy practice and a unique emphasis on the human dilemmas inherent in the pursuit of social justice. Author Amanda Barusch introduces several philosophical perspectives on what constitutes social justice, and identifies values and assumptions reflected in contemporary policy debates. She makes policy personal, introducing people whose lives are influenced by U.S. policies, as well as those who have shaped these policies. Part of the Brooks/Cole Empowerment Series, FOUNDATIONS OF SOCIAL POLICY, 6th Edition, integrates the core competencies and practice behaviors outlined in the 2015 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) set by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). Updated throughout, it also features a new chapter on crime and criminal justice.

Psychiatry: Past, Present, and Prospect brings together perspectives from a group of highly respected psychiatrists, each with decades of experience in clinical practice. The topics covered range from scientific discoveries of all kinds, advances in treatment, and conceptual breakthroughs. The highlights are countered by the field's negative sides: perennial indecisiveness about the boundaries of psychiatry; the limitations of a narrow approach to human suffering; the retreat from the hope of a de-institutionalised, community-based psychiatry; the divide between biological treatments and psychotherapy; the technical and ethical complexities of psychiatric research; and the low priority given to psychiatry, especially but far from exclusively in less developed countries. The result is a text full of collected wisdom which will promote the curiosity of mental health professionals about key developments in psychiatry over the past half century; sensitize the next generation of mental health professionals to the role they might play in advancing the state of knowledge about mental illness and its treatment during the course of their careers; and serve as a valuable archival resource for scholars. This collection of viewpoints from very experienced leaders in the field of psychiatry will prove fascinating reading for psychiatrists and allied mental health professionals, such as psychologists, psychiatric social workers, psychiatric nurses and occupational therapists, both trained and in training. It will also offer the interested laity a balanced account of psychiatry's evolution since the 1950s, and its likely prospects in the 21st century.Readership: Psychiatrists and allied mental health professionals, such as psychologists, psychiatric social workers, psychiatric nurses, and occupational therapists, trained and in training; the lay public who are commonly puzzled about what contemporary psychiatry has accomplished and what it may offer in the future.

"These cases exemplify the mental disorders categorized in the DSM-[tm]. Cases are cross-referenced with DSM-[tm] and help with understanding diagnostic concepts, including symptoms, severity, comorbidities, age of onset and development, dimensionality across disorders, and gender and cultural implications. A brief discussion follows each case, analyzing the clinical presentation, highlighting key points, and exploring issues of comorbidity that may complicate both the diagnosis and subsequent treatment"--publisher's description.
