Show Summary Details


The authors of this annotated bibliography attempt to capture some of the more recent literature in the field of military social work since the beginning of the century. The reader will note that there is an emphasis on topics surrounding The Global War on Terrorism (TGWT), mostly on the US military involvement in Iraq (OIF/OND) and Afghanistan (OEF). This focus is not meant to minimize the sacrifices made by American service members serving in previous conflicts or in other conflicts outside of the Middle East. Additionally, for the purposes of facilitating a literature search for the reader, we attempt to categorize topics into discrete areas of study; however, the categories are not mutually exclusive, nor is this an exhaustive list. Rather, it is a compilation of reference works we gathered with the intent that this information would reflect current social work knowledge (as well as knowledge from allied fields) for social workers to effectively understand and assist military and veteran client populations and their families. The impetus behind our efforts stems from an important document created by the Council of Social Work Education (CSWE) that defined practice and knowledge competencies for military social work (which will be discussed in a later section). Additionally, we have limited our sources to texts in English, although we do cover a few references that pertain to international military social work. (The reader is also advised that each section, per editorial guidelines, has a designated number of references, and thus some citations that should seemingly appear in a particular place will appear under other associated headings.)
