Synopsis

Social Work with Lesbians, Gays, and Bisexuals A Strengths Perspective by Katherine S. Van Wormer, Joel Wells, Mary Boes

This short, affordable paperback takes a strengths approach in its overview of social work practice with an oppressed population. The book speaks directly to students through illustrations and boxes written by fellow students, as well as a wealth of case examples provided by experienced family counselors. The text includes an entire chapter on sexuality (Ch. 6), two chapters on health care with the gay, lesbian, and bisexual population (Chs. 9 and 10), and sections on homophobia and prejudice (Ch. 2). The strengths approach provides a skills framework that relates to direct practice with all vulnerable people; the text also incorporates diverse racial, and sexual, perspectives.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

Sam Harper – age 10

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
