An interdisciplinary framework for sustainable helping through cross-system collaboration This hands-on resource provides clear, practical guidance for supportive service professionals working in a home-based environment. Drawing on best practices from a range of disciplines, this book provides a clear map for dealing with the complex and often ambiguous situations that arise with individuals and families, with applications extending to supervision and organizational change. Readers gain the advice and insight of real-world frontline helpers, as well as those who receive care, highlighting new ways to approach the work and re-think previous conceptualizations of problems and strengths. Helping efforts are organized around a shared, forward-thinking vision that anticipates obstacles and draws on existing and potential supports in developing a collaborative plan of action. The book begins with stories that illustrate core concepts and context, presenting a number of useful ideas that can reorient behavioral services while outlining a principle-based practice framework to help workers stay grounded and focused. Problems are addressed, and strength-based work is expanded into richer conversations about strengths in the context of intention and purpose, value and belief, hopes, dreams, and commitments. Topics include: * Contextual guidance with helping maps * Engaging people and re-thinking problems and strengths * Dilemmas in home and community services * Sustainable helping through collaboration and support A strong collaboration between natural networks, communities, and trained professionals across systems creates an effective helping endeavor. Ensuring sustainability may involve promoting systems change, and building institutional supports for specific supervisory, management, and organizational practices. Collaborative Helping provides a framework for organizing these efforts into a coherent whole, serving the needs of supportive services workers across sectors.
Thoroughly revised and expanded, the second edition of this successful text and professional resource offers an alternative approach to thinking about and working with "difficult" families. From a nonpathologizing stance, William C. Madsen demonstrates creative ways to help family members shift their relationship to longstanding problems; envision desired lives; and develop more proactive coping strategies. The second edition has been thoroughly updated with practice innovations and many new case illustrations. New appendices provide outlines for crafting collaborative assessments, therapy contracts, and other documentation that enhances accountability while also engaging clients and eliciting their strengths. Anyone working with families in crisis, especially in settings where time and resources are scarce, will gain valuable insights and tools from this book.
What is the nature of knowledge and truth? What influences our attitudes, and the way we think? What is the nature of the universe and our place in it? Such questions have interested philosophers for thousands of years. Each of the five books in this set address these questions in their own way. "Conditions of Knowing" criticises the naivete of contemporary epistemological and metaphysical attitudes and sets forth suggestions for improvements. "The Philosophy of 'As If'", published in 1924, looks at how we engage in false ideas and judgements and aims to create a more fruitful relationship between positivism and idealism. The set also includes Frederick Albert Lange's classic "History of Materialism," first published in 1890, and republished in 1925.
This 6-volume set includes texts covering ethics and political philosophy. It features two works by the eminent philosopher C.D. Broad. The first, "Ethics and History of Philosophy", is a selection of public lectures and articles spanning 25 years. The second, "Five Types of Ethical Theory", provides a critical discussion of five very different theories of ethics, those of Spinoza, Butler, Hume, Kant and Sidgwick. Of the other books in the set, "Ethical Relativity" examines the link between moral judgements and emotion. "Chinese Political Thought, Political Pluralism" and "The Individual and the Community" all examine different aspects of moral, political and social philosophy. Dating between 1927 and 1952, the books in this set aim to be of interest to modern-day people interested in how the study of ethics and political philosophy have developed over the years.
