Resiliency: An Integrated Approach to Practice, Policy, and Research presents a comprehensive and practical framework that integrates social work theory, policy, research, and method to promote resilience-based practice and facilitate its application. It educates readers on successful stress and trauma coping strategies and equips them to build client strengths, adaptation, healing, and self-efficacy. Roberta Greene and her contributors examine theoretical explanations of personal, family, community, and other environmental factors that encourage resiliency and explore lifespan issues that affect client success at the micro, mezzo, and macro levels. This well-timed book provides clear illustrations of resilience-based practice in diverse settings and across social work methods and provides specific intervention strategies at each of these levels. Resiliency is an essential and invaluable text for faculty across the curriculum and for students and practitioners. Special Features * Synthesizes key aspects of resiliency theory and research and applies the concepts to social work practice. * Illustrates resilience-based practice across fields of social work practice using provocative case studies. * Explores answers to critical questions such as what conditions facilitate health and wellness and how people formulate problem-solving strategies.
