Evidence-Based Practices for Social Workers: An Interdisciplinary Approach


Evidence-Based Practices for Social Workers: An Interdisciplinary Approach



Amid the growing demand for ethical, legal, and fiscal accountability in psychosocial practices, Evidence-Based Practices for Social Workers: An Interdisciplinary Approach provides a coherent, comprehensive, and useful resource for social workers and other human service professionals to help them

(1) conduct clinical assessments informed by current human behavior science;

(2) implement interventions supported by current outcome research; and,

(3) engage in evaluation as part of daily practice to ensure effective implementation of evidence-based practices.

Instead of depicting evidence-based practices as a simple matching of diagnostic categories with intervention methods, the text encourages critical thinking and flexibility guided by the best evidence in order to tailor practices to individual client needs. The multidimensional and functional approach to assessment is designed to integrate the use of human behavior knowledge with an analysis of each client's unique experiences.

Bad day at OHare or just another business trip or laugh it up buster




Bad day at OHare or just another business trip or laugh it up buster





This was part of a very, very long day at O'Hare, aka the Death of Me. It started out as a good day. I completed my business in Chicago early and headed out to the airport for my 4:00 flight back to Detroit. I felt good. The training class I ran in the morning went very well and for the first time in several weeks I was scheduled to be home before dinner. I knew storms were on their way, but I felt certain they would hit after my plane whisked me down the runway and across Lake Michigan. That's what the weatherman said. They wouldn't lie, would they? The T.V. had never let me down before.

Around 3:00 a storm rolls into the Chicago area. Not just any storm; one of those wicked buggers that cause sirens to go off and flights to be delayed. For the first time I can recall, we were evacuated from the terminal gate area. The tower was shut down. A ground stop was called. The flight monitors laid it all out in ugly detail- cancelled, cancelled, cancelled. Except my flight. I had a thin thread of hope.

This shot was taken right before the evacuation. Right across the main aisle, the windows on the other side displayed a late summer sun. Very weird. Then came the news: another line of storms were on the way. My patch of sun was something akin to the eye of the storm. Damn. Next the gate agent announced our plane was in the air but diverted to Milwaukee. Double damn. And our 4:00 departure was looking like 10:30 or later. My life sucks. Shoot me now.

Mother raised no fool. I added up the numbers- a bazillion flights cancelled, times 100 passengers for each flight, divided by the number of hotel roo.....Trust me, it equals get a hotel room now or risk sleeping on a cot in O'Hare, full of hot, angry smelly travelers. With air conditioning not working. I found a room at the Marriott Residence in O'Hare. Northwest pleasantly rebooked my flight even though it was not officially cancelled. Things were looking up. I was soon to find out looking up as in riding a rollercoaster.

I grabbed my luggage and headed over to the hotel shuttle station. It was incredibly humid, still over 80 degrees and in the words of Forest Gump, dumping 'big old fat rain'. I made a dash across the street and arrived at a scene out of some third world news footage. Every time a bus pulled up a mad rush ensued. You could almost feel the wave of humanity as these business travelers pushed and jousted to get on the bus. My bus finally arrived and we poured in. I figure there must have been 30- 40 people crammed on the bus. I think some people may have been hanging on the sides. None the less we pulled out and headed to our comfy beds.

We get to the hotel only to find the air conditioning is out along with the elevator. My room is on the fourth floor. Sorry, Buckshot, your Platinum Status with Marriott means nothing tonight. I had to step outside in the rain to get to my room. The key to the door didn't work. I'm soaked. My luggage is soaked. I lug my bags up the stairs, open the door, rip my shirt on a piece of metal and throw my bags down. With the air conditioning out, I opened the windows where the rumble of planes taking off from O'Hare reminded me all night long that just maybe my flight actually took off. It was then I realized how evil and alive O'Hare is- the airport was mocking me.

We managed to fly out of Heathrow this morning, delayed by an hour given the heightened security for all flights to the US after yesterday's failed terrorist attack. The normal security process was quick enough, but everyone was subjected to a second, more thorough search at the gate before boarding.

We made some time up during the flight, but our delayed connection was later cancelled because of snow. We were booked onto a flight at 5:15pm tomorrow - more than 26 hours later than planned - and told that because the cancellation was due to the weather, the best the airline could (would?) do is offer discounted vouchers for local hotels. Instead we opted to stay and sleep in the airport, on the 'cots' that were laid out in the complex at 8pm, to be removed at 4am the following morning.

The weather at the airport doesn't look too bad, and flights are still coming in and out. Here is an American Airlines plane being de-iced prior to departure.

Oh, and if at all possible, I would advise against flying with American. I think they forgot that they represent the country with a reputation for great customer service. Expect to be treated as an inconvenience rather than a valued customer.

Father Walther's Temptation






"He began to cry. One moment he was calmly drying his hands on a piece of brown paper toweling, and the next his face was contorted with misery, a child’s hopeless grief made all the more grotesque by his forty-year-old features. A geyser of self-pity had erupted inside him, carrying with it all the pain and humiliation he had not allowed himself to feel at his mother’s betrayal or Martha’s cold rejection. He was a friendless middle-aged priest, more than halfway to the grave, errand-boy for a senile monsignor who cared more about squeezing an extra few dollars out of his bovine congregation than about ministering to the sick and poor."

Father Walther's Temptation is the story of a man sheltered too long by his profession, "tempted" by life itself. He has been a Catholic priest for more than a decade, dispensing sacraments, entertaining the blue-haired ladies of the Rosary Society and running a parish for a senile monsignor and his dictatorial housekeeper. Even the annual trip to his mother looms as just another disagreeable chore. But when his aging Ford gives up the ghost on the New Jersey Turnpike, the breakdown starts a chain of events and chance meetings that threatens to turn his life upside down.

Befriended by an auto mechanic and his wife, the priest learns something about the nature of irredeemable grief. Molested by a simple-hearted country girl, he feels not so much violated as foolish. When he finally gets to visit his mother, he finds not a sexless, selfless widow but a casualty of romantic exhaustion. His eventual nemesis turns out to be a woman determined to seduce not just the sexual man but the human being that has been so long denied. The project is a large order, and there is plenty of adventure along the way, much of it comic, some tragic, all engrossing.
