Synopsis

Fundamentals for Practice with High Risk Populations by Nancy Summers

Summers' new text examines all the particular issues and specific concerns that should be understood and addressed for each high-risk population. The text indicates what warning signs to look for, what questions to ask, and what potential problems may arise. While it primarily functions as a companion text to Summers' FUNDAMENTALS OF CASE MANAGEMENT PRACTICE, which covers the basics of case management, this new text presents the basic steps in practice, dealing with specific high-risk populations. It also offers a greater focus on intake and monitoring. Although Summers' two books are related, this book can also be used on its own or as a supplement to other, more theoretical texts. The text is also an ideal reference for students working with specific populations.
