Each original chapter includes relevant history of the theoretical perspective, clinical method, or issue/theme/dilemma; key ideas, concepts, and terminology associated with the topic; clinical examples derived from contemporary practice; discussion of new developments; and, where appropriate, content that addresses the clinical evidentiary base.
The third edition includes new content within each chapter, thoroughly updated chapter references, and information on emerging themes in the discipline. New, original chapters address clinical practice with gay, lesbian, and bisexual clients; transgender clients; and suicidal youth and adults. Additional chapters examine consensual and nonconsensual sexting in adolescence and clinical social work in a digital environment.
Rich in practical and thought-provoking content, Theory and Practice in Clinical Social Work is an outstanding resource for graduate-level social work students and entry-level clinical professionals.

"If there is a weakness within the 30 chapters and over 700 pages of the third edition of Theory and Practice in Clinical Social Work, edited by Jerrold R. Brandell, I could not find it. Dr. Brandell has masterfully assembled a comprehensive anthology of the foremost experts and scholars from virtually every area of clinical social work and, in so doing, reveals the breadth and depth of our extraordinary field. This volume, replete with clear and compelling clinical examples, has no theoretical axe to grind, but rather permits each distinguished author to articulate how and why they think and practice. Each chapter has an extraordinarily rich bibliography, inclusive of the most important literature from the past while staying abreast of vital, contemporary writings and practices. Teachers will love this book because they will be able to select groupings of chapters from which to teach any number of courses as they provide their students with this inspirational gift of a book—a trustworthy clinical practice guide that will provide them information and support in their professional careers for many years to come."
William S. Meyer, MSW, Associate Professor, Departments of Psychiatry and OB/GYN, Director of Social Work Training, Duke University Medical Center
“This book is an invaluable resource for clinical social work students and practitioners. Admirably theory-bound and wealthy on practice experience, the book guides effective clinical practice though the in-depth assessment and interventions on human psychosocial suffering.”
Dr. George Karpetis, Psychotherapist, Adjunct Senior Lecturer, Adelaide Medical School
