Social Work Case Management: Case Studies from the Frontlines
By Michael J. Holosko
Social work case management is a high growth occupation. Case management, which requires determining the social and/or health care needs of a client and facilitating service use in a community of care, is often part of other social work duties as well as a position in its own right.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that employment of social work case managers in the health care sector are expected to increase 19 percent between 2014 and 2024, a much faster rate than the average for most professions.
To fill the void, Michael J. Holosko wrote and edited Social Work Case Management: Case Studies from the Frontlines with input from 42 contributors. Holosko is the Pauline M. Berger Professor of Family and Child Welfare at the UGA School of Social Work.
Contributors to the book, many from the UGA School of Social Work, provide compelling, real-life examples of how they employ a step-by-step approach to case management known as the task-centered case management model.
