Summers' (Harrisburg Area Community College) textbook gives students in the social services fields a detailed picture of specific high-risk populations, including the unique difficulties, considerations, and issues confronting individuals in these groups and those faced by the workers who serve them. Coverage includes the definition of high risk, a theoretical means of looking at interventions, taking a sound social history when evaluation and assessment forms are not available, asking difficult questions, and case management of six groups: children, survivors of rape and domestic violence, and clients challenged by chemical dependence, impaired mental health, mental retardation, or age. Intended as a supplement to Fundamentals of Case Management Practice (Summers, 2001). Annotation c. Book News, Inc.,Portland, OR
