Description:

The Missing Link:Contributions of the Neurosciences to Social Work Practice is a supplementary textbook that provides critical missing knowledge about neuroscience and biology that social workers (and other non-medical psychosocial practitioners) need to provide effective services to the individuals, families, groups, and communities that they encounter professionally. It reviews the up-to-date findings from selected areas of neuroscience and present these in a way that persons without a medical background can understand. It shows how and why this new knowledge is needed, and to provide specific examples of how it can be utilized in social work practice.
