 Social Work Practice with Older Adults promotes a strengths-based social work perspective to dispel myths and stereotypes about older adults and encourages students to focus on client strengths and resources when working with the elderly. Organized around the World Health Organization’s Active Aging policy framework, this book has a unique foundation based on contemporary practice. Authors Jill Chonody and Barbra Teater focus on the major behavioral, personal, physical, social, and economic determinants. Covering micro, mezzo, and macro practice domains, this innovative text examines all aspects of working with aging populations, from assessment through termination.
