Title information

The School Social Work Toolkit is a "how to" resource for social workers, counselors, and mental health professionals in education. This book encompasses the direct practice part of the school social worker's job as well as the administrative and policy-driven aspects such as child abuse reporting, disciplinary interventions, training, and dealing with teachers and parents.

The workbook is divided into seven main sections:

• Defining Your Role as a Social Worker

• Individual Counseling Activities

• Group Implementation and Counseling Activities

• Workshops and School Programs

• Communication with Teachers and Professional Development

• Communicating with Parents

• Crisis Intervention—Protocols and Assessments

The toolkit provides hands-on activities and workshops about various social work topics. In addition, the book contains a multitude of invaluable, modifiable sample forms and policy drafts for the school social worker—especially one who acts in an administrator role.

The first of its kind, The School Social Work Toolkit contains real-life examples of how to talk to teachers and parents about students facing a variety of common struggles that are, nevertheless, frequently difficult to discuss and how to conduct student and teacher trainings. It also serves as a step-by-step guide to dealing with suicidal and homicidal clients. This title will help both new school social workers and those with many years of experience define their roles as a school social worker and hone their clinical skills.
