RX Appalachia: Stories of Treatment and Survival in Rural Kentucky
Using the narratives of women who use(d) drugs, this account challenges popular understandings of Appalachia spread by such pundits as JD Vance by documenting how women, families, and communities cope with generational systems of oppression. Prescription opioids are associated with rising rates of overdose deaths and hepatitis C and HIV infection in the US, including in rural Central Appalachia. Yet there is a dearth of studies examining rural opioid use. RX Appalachia explores the gendered inequalities that situate women's encounters with substance abuse treatment as well as additional state interventions targeted at women who use drugs in one of the most impoverished regions in the US.

Notes from the Fireground: Memoir of a New York Firefighter
In a 33-year career with the New York City Fire Department, Tom Dunne fought hundreds of fires, survived near death incidents, crawled down burning hallways, met unforgettable characters, and witnessed the 9/11 terrorist attack. From working in glittering mid-Manhattan high-rises to squalid ghetto tenements, he saw how people in crisis lived and survived and how the firefighters who served them worked and bonded. Exploring both the positive and controversial aspects of being a firefighter, this no-holds barred memoir provides an honest account of an unusual occupation that outsiders seldom get to see.

Bandage, Sort, and Hustle: Ambulance Crews on the Front Lines of Urban Suffering
What is the role of the ambulance in the American city? The prevailing narrative provides a rather simple answer: saving and transporting the critically ill and injured. This is not an incorrect description, but it is incomplete. Drawing on field observations, medical records, and his own experience as a novice emergency medical technician, sociologist Josh Seim reimagines paramedicine as a frontline institution for governing urban suffering. Bandage, Sort, and Hustle argues that the ambulance is part of a fragmented regime that is focused more on neutralizing hardships (which are disproportionately carried by poor people and people of color) than on eradicating the root causes of agony. Whether by compressing lifeless chests on the streets or by transporting the publicly intoxicated into the hospital, ambulance crews tend to handle suffering bodies near the bottom of the polarized metropolis. Seim illustrates how this work puts crews in recurrent, and sometimes tense, contact with the emergency department nurses and police officers who share their clientele. These street-level relations, however, cannot be understood without considering the bureaucratic and capitalistic forces that control and coordinate ambulance labor from above. Beyond the ambulance, this book motivates a labor-centric model for understanding the frontline governance of down-and-out populations.

Strategic Leadership and Management in Nonprofit Organizations: Theory and Practice
Nonprofit organizations need smart, informed managers. This comprehensive introductory textbook aims to expose students to the range of responsibilities expected from modern nonprofit organizations and their boards, executive management, frontline staff, and community volunteers. Section 1 focuses on the characteristics of a nonprofit organization, with an explanation of the specific attributes of both charitable and member-serving nonprofits. It considers the historical development of the nonprofit sector as a whole and of the human services subsector in particular, culminating with a review of the political and economic climate in which nonprofits operate. Section 2 considers theories of leadership. The multiple roles of the nonprofit professional leader are delineated, to recognize that the same person may serve as manager and administrator, motivated by different priorities when functioning in each capacity. Ethical issues are also considered, along with the theoretical and practical aspects of decision-making, and the relationship between organizational culture and organizational change. Sections 3 and 4 address the specific skills of the nonprofit leader involved in securing material resources and managing human resources, respectively. The book concludes with a focus on the role of volunteers and the need for organizations to provide them good experiences if they want volunteers to keep coming back. Featuring an extended case study, this book is a useful guide for students and professionals new to the workplace on topics such as successfully managing change, strengthening programs, nurturing a dynamic board of directors, diversifying revenues, and building a strong, committed staff and volunteer corps.

Social Work Evaluation: Enhancing What We Do
Social workers are increasingly met with the demands of evaluating their own programs and practice to maintain accountability with stakeholders, secure funding, and to remedy a number of large-scale problems facing our society. One of the four basic areas of the Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS), evaluation, is a critical process for demonstrating social work programs' ability to help the clients and communities they serve. Social Work Evaluation, Third Edition, offers a straightforward guide in a broad range of social work evaluations at both the program and practice levels. Author James R. Dudley's seven-step approach to evaluation makes use of qualitative, quantitative, and mixed research methods to identify oversight and issues at the planning, implementation, and final outcome stages of intervention development. His unique focus on involving clients in the evaluation process ensures social workers consistently improve their capacity to impact clients' well-being and remain accountable to the communities they serve. Case examples from the author's extensive experience in evaluation illustrate a number of logic-based methods discussed throughout the text for real-world application. This comprehensive text aims to enhance student and practitioner skill sets to meet the demands of a changing field.

The Right to Have Rights
Sixty years ago, the political theorist Hannah Arendt, an exiled Jew deprived of her German citizenship, observed that before people can enjoy any of the inalienable Rights of Man-before there can be any specific rights to education, work, voting, and so on-there must first be such a thing as the right to have rights . The concept received little attention at the time, but in our age of mass deportations, Muslim bans, refugee crises, and extra-state war, the phrase has become the centre of a crucial and lively debate. Here five leading thinkers from varied disciplines-including history, law, politics, and literary studies-discuss the critical basis of rights and the meaning of radical democratic politics today.

Cultural Economies of Locative Media
Location, location-awareness, and location data have all become familiar and increasingly significant parts of our everyday mobile-mediated experiences. Cultural Economies of Locative Media examines the ways in which location-based services, such as GPS-enabled mobile smartphones, are socially, culturally, economically, and politically produced just as much as they are technically designed and manufactured. Rowan Wilken explores the complex interrelationships that mutually define new business models and the economic factors that emerge around, and structure, locative media services. Further, he offers readers insight into the diverse social uses, cultures of consumption, and policy implications of location, providing a detailed, critical account of contemporary location-sensitive mobile data. Cultural Economies of Locative Media delves into the ideas, technologies, contexts, and power relationships that define this scholarship, resulting in a rich portrait of locative media in all of its cultural and economic complexity.

Narrative Systems in Psychotherapy: An Integrative Approach to Individual, Couple, and Family Therapy
Narrative Systems in Psychotherapy: An Integrative Approach to Individual, Couple, and Family Therapy provides students with innovative research and insight to support their counseling practice with individuals, couples, and families. The book employs a narrative systems approach, encouraging readers to view psychotherapeutic theories as a collection of useful stories about human nature, human difficulties, and possible means of treatment. The book begins with an introduction to narrative systems theory, emphasizing the idea that an individual's experiences and the personal narratives they construct from those experiences inform their perceptions, beliefs, thoughts, and emotional imprinting. Readers learn how to leverage this information to develop a shared therapeutic narrative with their clients and, as a result, create meaningful and effective treatment plans. Dedicated chapters explore the principle tasks of therapy, the nature of conflict in relationships, the skills required for successful communication between couples, family dynamics, stressors, and systems, and more. Prominent literature within the discipline is reviewed and referenced, and real-world examples are presented throughout to bridge theory with practice. Narrative Systems in Psychotherapy is designed to support graduate-level courses in theories and methods of marriage and family therapy.

Counseling for the Real World: Case Studies Across the Curriculum
Counseling for the Real World: Case Studies Across the Curriculum bridges the gap between theory and practice by providing students with the opportunity to actively analyze true-to-life case simulations. Engaging, realistic client vignettes presented within the text reflect clinical expertise, experience, research on current clinical trends, and interviews with clinicians, supervisors, and educators. The cases challenge students to wrestle deeply with real-world client issues to better prepare for practicum and internship experiences. The text addresses a variety of theoretical orientations, topics, and clinical settings in an integrated fashion. Each chapter is organized by student skill level and directly correlates to a CACREP core area and/or a common course taught in clinical mental health counseling programs. The chapters are divided into three topical areas: professional orientation and ethics, counseling theories and relationships, and topic and course-specific cases. Each chapter contains a beginner, intermediate, and advanced level case, along with discussion questions and application activities for each case. Topics covered include: the foundations of clinical mental health counseling, legal considerations, using counseling skills to build therapeutic rapport, multicultural competence, trauma treatment, child and adolescent counseling, career counseling, and much more. Designed to provide students of all skill levels with meaningful insight and practice, Counseling for the Real World is ideal for clinical mental health and professional counseling preparation programs. The text features a standalone chapter for students pursuing their Ph.D. in counselor education and supervision. In addition, each chapter includes specific discussion questions and application activities related to the teaching and supervision of the cases presented within the chapter. These unique features make this textbook a valuable resource for counselor education programs at both the master's and doctoral level.

Mental Health and Palestinian Citizens in Israel
Minorities face particular social strains, and these are often manifested in their overall mental health. In Israel, just under a quarter of the citizens are Arab Palestinians, yet very little has been published exploring the spectrum of mental health issues prevalent in this population. The work collected here draws on the first-hand experience of experts working with Israeli Palestinians to highlight the problems faced by service users, their families, and their communities. Palestinians in Israel face unique social, gender, and family-related conditions that also need reliable research and assessment. Mental Health and Palestinian Citizens in Israel offers research and observation on three central topics: socio-cultural determinants of mental health, mental health needs, and mental health service utilization. From suicidal behaviors and addiction to generational trauma and the particular concerns of children and the elderly, this broad and careful collection of research opens new dialogues on treatment, prevention, and methods for providing the best possible care to those in need.

PC155, Les Morris looks back over his time in the police force and how much things have changed over the years, not just in the force itself but in the wider world beyond. Technology, communication, new laws and legislation have changed policing, almost beyond recognition, and this unique insight reveals much about how the force used to run and the changes that made it into the organisation we recognise today. These memoirs are based on the personal experiences of a young man making his way through the ranks and those characters and challenges he meets along the way. The author hopes the book will give anyone interested in joining the police force a real insight into the recent history of this organisation

Who Killed Civil Society?: The Rise of Big Government and Decline of Bourgeois Norms
Billions of American tax dollars go into a vast array of programs targeting various social issues: the opioid epidemic, criminal violence, chronic unemployment, and so on. Yet the problems persist and even grow. Howard Husock argues that we have lost sight of a more powerful strategy-a preventive strategy, based on positive social norms. In the past, individuals and institutions of civil society actively promoted what may be called bourgeois norms, to nurture healthy habits so that social problems wouldn't emerge in the first place. It was a formative effort. Today, a massive social service state instead takes a reformative approach to problems that have already become vexing. It offers counseling along with material support, but struggling communities have been more harmed than helped by government's embrace. And social service agencies have a vested interest in the continuance of problems. Government can provide a financial safety net for citizens, but it cannot effectively create or promote healthy norms. Nor should it try. That formative work is best done by civil society. This book focuses on six key figures in the history of social welfare to illuminate how a norm-promoting culture was built, then lost, and how it can be revived. We read about Charles Loring Brace, founder of the Children's Aid Society; Jane Addams, founder of Hull House; Mary Richmond, a social work pioneer; Grace Abbott of the federal Children's Bureau; Wilbur Cohen of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare; and Geoffrey Canada, founder of the Harlem Children's Zone-a model for bringing real benefit to a poor community through positive social norms. We need more like it.

Yet only now, 270 years later, is the happiness of citizens starting to be taken seriously as the purpose of government.

Postmodern Social Work: Reflective Practice and Education
How should social workers adapt to a time of widespread instability and uncertainty? How can social work practice account for the ever-increasing infiltration of technology and media images into our daily lives and mental states? In this book, Ken Moffatt turns to postmodern philosophy's grappling with late capitalism and the omnipresence of technology in order to develop a new approach to reflective social work practice and critical pedagogy. Postmodern Social Work attempts to reconcile postmodern thinkers with the realities of teaching social work to diverse student populations in a precarious era. Moffatt advocates an ideal of reflective practice that allows social workers to combine direct experience, social welfare, and social justice. Through a series of interlocking essays focused on the theoretical underpinnings of reflective practice in the context of social work education, he explores the implications of postmodern theory for social work practice. Drawing on thinkers such as Michel Foucault, Judith Butler, Julia Kristeva, Gilles Deleuze, and Felix Guattari, Moffatt lays out a path forward for reflective social work, providing new ways of thinking that collapse old categories and integrate direct practice with community engagement and social analysis. Postmodern Social Work offers an approach to practice and teaching that considers the shifting landscape of social change while remaining true to social work's primary concerns of inclusion and justice.
