Show Summary Details


This chapter demonstrates the strengths- and skills-building model — its principles and practice techniques. All examples are drawn from social service work in a hospital setting, leading to the secondary purpose of the chapter — illustrating how the strengths- and skills-building model can be used in medical social service in which the practitioner has few client contacts and focuses on needs assessment, discharge planning, and referral.

Keywords: medical social work; collaboration; motivation; strengths; hospital; client contacts
