This book is the fifth in a series of compendia edited by Leon Ginsberg on modern approaches to social work in rural areas. Rural social workers face special problems related to their work locations, such as professional isolation, lack of supervision, the almost inevitable existence of dual relationships, and the different scale and emphases of life in small communities. This highly readable text offers guidance on these and many other issues. The volume contains 20 all-new chapters by and for rural social work scholars, educators, and practitioners on the cutting-edge subjects of the discipline. Building on the previous editions, the book includes new discussions of specific populations and social problems in rural areas; the difficulties of educating, recruiting, and retaining rural social workers; and also addresses current issues such as technology and diversity in rural areas.
