Social Work with Military Populations

    By

    A user-friendly approach to practicing social work with military members, veterans, their families, and their communities-complete with case examples from practitioners who have worked extensively with military populations. Social workers with prior knowledge of the military and those who are new to the culture and lifestyle will find Social Work with Military Populations an invaluable resource for working with military members, veterans, their families, and their communities. Designed specifically with these populations in mind, the book helps readers learn and apply existing research-based and emerging material about assessment and intervention as they engage with realistic military social work case and community scenarios in every chapter. Significant attention is focused on helping readers understand military culture, the important/unique roles that social workers play within the military, and the ethical challenges often faced by practitioners in this field. Chapters highlight specific areas of military social work knowledge ranging from assessing suicide, substance abuse, and trauma responses to community practice and helping members and families deal with military deployments, injuries, family maltreatment, and much more.
