Case Studies on Sexual Orientation and Gender Expression in Social Work Practice

Edited by Lori Messinger, Edited by Deana F. Morrow

About the Book

This casebook focuses on sexual orientation and gender expression in relation to social work practice. An excellent resource, it offers 29 cases illustrating the variety of issues facing gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) people and communities in five practice settings-individuals, couples and families, communities and organizations, groups, and policy and research. The book also contains discussion questions, classroom exercises, and suggested readings for each case, so educators can easily integrate GLBT content into the classroom.

Case Studies on Sexual Orientation and Gender Expression in Social Work Practice may be used on its own, in conjunction with another textbook, or as a complement to Deana F. Morrow and Lori Messinger's Sexual Orientation and Gender Expression in Social Work Practice: Working with Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender People (Columbia, 2006). Messinger and Morrow are award-winning teachers and their groundbreaking book is key for culturally competent undergraduate or graduate courses in practice, policy, human behavior and the social environment, research, and field education.

Reviews

" Case Studies goes beyond the basic education of theoretical concepts specific to the LGBT population and allows for the elicitation of discussion." -- Mona Tiernan, PsycCritiques
