The aging of societies is a global phenomenon. In the United States alone, the life expectancy for both men and women will continue to increase over the next few decades and with that a population explosion of older adults. The dramatic increase in the number and diversity of older adults elevates the visibility of gerontological matters. As a result, social work practice is becoming more multigenerational, thereby demanding social workers, regardless of their professional endeavors, to be equipped with the most innovative theories and practices to serve older adults and their families. This comprehensive text spans the new knowledge and skills required in direct practice areas, group work, and macro practice. It also outlines the Geriatric Social Work Competencies, as developed by social work educators, necessary to serve the older adult population and suggests how these competencies can be integrated into foundation curriculum. Social work educators, students, practitioners, administrators, and policymakers will find updated, useful information in this text regarding * assessment tools * cultural influences * evidence-based practices * intervention techniques * theoretical examples. "Individuals are living longer and healthier lives in part because of the extraordinary growth of biomedical knowledge and public health initiatives. The confluence of the rapid and large increase of the older population and the exponential increase in the dissemination of knowledge create an imperative for social workers to employ the most recent knowledge in their practice with people living increasingly long lives." -- JoAnn Damron-Rodriguez Department of Social Welfare University of California, Los Angeles
