Social Work Practice with Older Adults: An Evidence-Based Approach helps future social workers identify effective evidence-based treatment options and cultivate the skills needed to successfully engage, assess, intervene, and evaluate, and provide advocacy at micro, mezzo, and macro levels to older adults and their families. Emphasizing intersectionality theory, the text encourages readers to consider the context and intersecting diversity factors of the older adult client and to involve them in deciding their treatment plans, empowering older adults to select culturally preferred and highly meaningful care.
