This peer-reviewed journal continues to present fresh and relevant material, covering the gerontological social work issues you want and need to know about. Some of the topics you'll learn about in the journal include: casework and groupwork with the elderly, social work in nursing homes and long-term care facilities, hospital geriatric social work, community health care, public welfare and the elderly, mental health services for the aged, coordination of human services for the aged, law and gerontological social work, social work education in the aging field, family services and the aged, policy and planning studies, crisis intervention with the elderly, problems of geriatric drug and alcohol abuse, special clinical skills, such as the use of life review and task-oriented casework, factors of class and ethnicity as they affect service delivery and use. The Journal of Gerontological Social Work does more than simply help social workers provide care to the elderly--it also helps you in your dealings with patients' families and with your administrative, supervisory, and research needs. The journal occasionally devotes an entire issue to one topic of timely importance. Examples include new developments in home care services, aging and vision, international perspectives of gerontological social work, and social work with Alzheimer's patients.
