This CD-ROM will allow students to learn social work skills through the latest technology available. It is designed as a practical guide to teaching basic counseling skills. The CD-ROM offers video segments showing three different social worker-client interactions. The student can view the video, stop the action and respond to questions, look up references, or obtain more in-depth information about each skill segment. Common pitfalls are noted for each skill set, as well as examples of appropriate and inappropriate uses of skills and outcomes. Social work values are discussed in the CD-ROM, as well as communication concepts and principles, interviewing and problem-solving skills, and more. An accompanying student manual allows the student to take notes and complete written exercises about the skills demonstrated.Sevel, Judith is the author of 'Student Guide and Workbook for Social Work Skills Demonstrated Beginning Direct Practice Cd-Rom', published 1999 under ISBN 9780205294558 and ISBN 0205294553.
