Автор: Farmer R Название: Neuroscience and Social Work Practice .

Farmer’s book can be easily read in one sitting. The first chapter provides a tour of the brain, and subsequent chapters are enriched with case vignettes that make clear connections across social work practice and neuroscience findings. Two primary themes are highlighted in Farmer’s book

Over the past 30 years, findings in the neurosciences have grown exponentially and have provided a profound understanding of the link between behavior and biology. Although the Social Work community has long taken pride in using a bio-psycho-social-spiritual (BPSS) framework in conceptualization and intervention, the biological aspect of this BPSS framework has been sorely missing. Neuroscience and Social Work Practice provides the critical missing link. Introducing the latest neuroscience research, it gives practitioners essential data―in an easily accessible form―with which to take on the challenges of increasingly complex human problems and diagnoses. Key Features

Takes readers on a "tour of the brain" and makes dense scientific material more engaging  Provides a framework for how human service professionals can understand and implement neuroscience clinical data with the use of the Transactional Model Uses case vignettes to explain how neuroscience findings have been applied to specific practice situations Offers a deeper understanding of the links between neuroscience research and social work in such areas as trauma, attachment, psychotherapy, substance abuse, and the effects of psychotropic medications

Intended Audience This cutting-edge text is indispensable for practitioners in the human services field and is an essential supplement for upper-level undergraduate or graduate students of courses in Human Behavior in the Social Environment and Social Work Direct Practice as well as courses on Interpersonal Practice with Individuals, Children, and Families.

Mr.Bean
I have enjoyed reading this book. The information presented is fascinating and the way it's presented is approachable and reader-friendly. I purchased it for a class in grad school and found it to be an enjoyable read. The author did a nice job of presenting a field of study that's enormously complex in a way that is enjoyable and readable by a typical reader. The only thing I thought was lacking was the labeling on the diagrams of the brain. The diagrams identified some specific parts of the brain but did not identify other parts of the brain that were mentioned in the text. I found myself several times examining the diagrams in order to find a part of the brain I just read about but wasn't able to find because they were not included in the diagrams.

I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in neuroscience, whether they are in an academic setting or not.

This arrived very fast. I was impressed. However it appears to be used when it clearly stated new.

I needed the book for a class last semester, this book was very complicated to read even with my background in nursing. I did well on the book report for class that was required

The book is normal up to page 145, then you have to find page 146 at the back of the book. The pages after 146at the back of the book then run backwards to complete the books. Thier out of order. I had a good laugh. I wonder if I was the only one that had this issue. This is an advanced graduate book. Difficult to read, but interesting. Does great to tie the medical model and social work together.

All social workers should read this book. Very well written
