Commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Department of Social Work at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City, this innovative and exciting book traces the growth of the social work mission and the development of vanguard social work programs at Mount Sinai. Leading social work educators and practitioners look at where the profession is today and speculate on where it might be going. Each article is new and original to this book, and each contributor is a distinguished representative from his specialty in the field. Advancing Social Work Practice in the Health Care Field, with its wealth of historical, practical, and theoretical information, reflects today’s state of the art in selected areas and should serve as an information source not only for practitioners and administrators, but also for educators who are committed to enhancing the social work services and the quality of social health care.
