Including education has profound consequences, undergirding the case for the productivity of welfare state programs and the explanation for why all rich nations have large welfare states, and identifying US welfare state leadership. From 1968 through 2006, the United States swung right politically and lost its lead in education and opportunity, failed to adopt universal health insurance and experienced the most rapid explosion of health care costs and economic inequality in the rich world. The American welfare state faces large challenges. Restoring its historical lead in education is the most important but requires investing large sums in education, beginning with universal pre-school and in complementary programs that aid children's development.

Conducting a successful professional interview is more than an exercise of technical skills. The specific approach an interviewer takes with any client should be informed by the interviewer's understanding of the client's needs and preferences exhibited within the developing relationship. Interviewing for the Helping Professions promotes a theory-driven, relational approach to professional interviewing across disciplines. The author's aim is to organically illustrate the theories and techniques of interviewing within the context of building and utilizing the therapeutic relationship. The author uses example interviews to illustrate the variety of settings, clients, and issues interviewers encounter. Each interview is fully annotated with the theory and practice skills being exhibited. The emphasis on theory allows the reader to fully understand the underlying principles of interviewing, encouraging them to be present and in-the-moment with their clients. This comprehensive book is an indispensable resource for practice courses in counseling, human services, psychology, and social work programs.

The applicability of attachment theory and research to social work and social policy relating to infants and children is well-established. Yet, its usefulness for enhancing the understanding of adults and their needs, both individually and as a group, has been less featured in the attachment literature.

This edited volume covers the applicability of adult attachment theory to the clinical social work profession’s various domains that include human behavior, practice, policy, research, and social work education. It addresses the broad spectrum of clinical social work, including practice in a variety of public and private settings and with a number of diverse populations, including racial-ethnic groups, gays and lesbians, trauma survivors, and child welfare parents. The book highlights the underemphasized contribution of the social work profession to the development of attachment theory and research.

'The strengths of this book are the first two chapters outlining the issues around realist evaluation and the final chapter, as well as the use throughout the book of real-life examples... in conclusion this is a timely introductory text on the methods and methodology of realist evaluation' - Critical Public Health Realist evaluation is an exciting new way to investigate what works, for whom and in what contexts and here for the first time, Mansoor A F Kazi shows how it applies to today's practice in social work, health and other human services. To show how realist evaluation has the potential to change practice, the author provides in-depth examples of evaluation in adult rehabilitation, drug-using communities, users of family centres and an NSPCC project that provides services for children who sexually harm other children. Within these instances, realist evaluation procedures were integrated into the practice and decisions regarding the content and the targeting of services were developed effectively. Written in an engaging style, this book will be of value to social workers and all those engaged in service delivery or research across the spectrum of health and social care.
