Clin Soc Work J 2018 Dec 15;46(4):271-280. Epub 2018 Oct 15.

New York University.

Clinical supervision is an embedded resource for practice quality in community mental health organizations. Supervision has been found to increase provider competence and decrease stress. In addition, supervision has been associated with service user outcomes including decreased depressive symptoms. Read More

Evaluating the Quality of Social Work Supervision in UK Children's Services: Comparing Self-Report and Independent Observations.

Clin Soc Work J 2018 21;46(4):350-360. Epub 2018 Sep 21.

3Children's Services, London Borough of Islington, London, UK.

Understanding how different forms of supervision support good social work practice and improve outcomes for people who use services is nearly impossible without reliable and valid evaluative measures. Yet the question of how best to evaluate the quality of supervision in different contexts is a complicated and as-yet-unsolved challenge. In this study, we observed 12 social work supervisors in a simulated supervision session offering support and guidance to an actor playing the part of an inexperienced social worker facing a casework-related crisis.

Remission from Depression in the DSM: Moving from Rhetoric to Restoration.

Clin Soc Work J 2018 28;46(3):220-227. Epub 2017 Jun 28.

Social Work, Department of Clinical Sciences, Brunel University London, Kingston Lane, UXBRIDGE, UB8 3PH UK.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition, the most recent edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, uses the term "remission" to describe the reduction of depressive symptoms. This paper argues that by categorizing someone who no longer has depressive symptoms as "in remission," that person may feel indefinitely tied to his or her diagnosis. Considering the unfortunate stigma associated with mental illness, permanent linkage to diagnosis through records and professional memory may cause individuals to internalize pathology. Read More

Autism Spectrum Disorder: The Impact of Stressful and Traumatic Life Events and Implications for Clinical Practice.

Authors:
Samantha Fuld

Clin Soc Work J 2018 17;46(3):210-219. Epub 2018 Jan 17.

NYU Silver School of Social Work, New York University, 1201 West Mount Royal Avenue #304, Baltimore, MD 21217 USA.

Research findings suggest that behavioral interventions are effective in improving educational outcomes and fostering skill development in people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). However, high rates of comorbidity between ASD and other psychological disorders, including depression and anxiety, indicate that standard behavioral approaches are not adequately addressing issues related to mental health in this population. Research emerging since the publication of the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) is advancing our understanding of the nature of childhood stress and trauma in people with ASD and its subsequent impact on mental health and wellbeing.

Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with Children of Incarcerated Parents.

Clin Soc Work J 2018 24;46(3):200-209. Epub 2017 Oct 24.

New York University Silver School of Social Work, 444 13th Street #2, Brooklyn, NY 11215 USA.

This paper explores children's trauma symptoms related to parental incarceration and lays the groundwork for the implementation of Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) within a clinical community-based setting treating children and adolescents affected by parental incarceration. Children and adolescents who experience parental incarceration are more likely to develop symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD): depression, anger, aggression, and isolating and self-harming behaviors. Although parental incarceration is a known source of trauma, there are no documented studies examining effective clinical treatments to reduce the effects of the trauma experienced by these children and adolescents.

Schizoid Fantasy: Refuge or Transitional Location?

Authors:
Candace Orcutt

Clin Soc Work J 2018;46(1):42-47. Epub 2017 Jun 2.

313 Herrick Avenue, Teaneck, NJ 07666 USA.

The schizoid personality, a type increasingly representative of our times, lives in a detached individual world. But this retreat sometimes can offer a place of transition, serving as a creative bridge to everyday life. An extended case illustration describes a schizoid patient who was able to use a playful form of psychotherapy to move from make-believe to real relationship. Read More

Triads in Equine-Assisted Social Work Enhance Therapeutic Relationships with Self-Harming Adolescents.

Clin Soc Work J 2017;45(4):320-331. Epub 2016 Nov 16.

Department of Social Work, Linnaeus University, 391 82 Kalmar, Sweden.

Despite an increasing number of studies, there is still a lack of knowledge about the unique features that underlie the process in equine assisted social work (EASW). This study aimed to reveal, through qualitative methods, the dyads within the triad that become stronger during the process of EASW, as well as the effect of the participation of the horse on the relationship between the counselor and client. Data were collected through in-depth interviews with nine female self-harming clients aged 15-21 years and eight staff members. Read More

Perceptions and Experiences of an Attachment-Based Intervention for Parents Troubled by Intimate Partner Violence.

Clin Soc Work J 2017;45(4):311-319. Epub 2016 Sep 1.

Department of Psychology, University of Gothenburg, Box 500, 405 30 Gothenburg, Sweden.

It is known that intimate partner violence (IPV) negatively affects both parental capacity and children's well-being, but few studies have focused on the experiences of those taking part in family interventions focused on IPV. In this study, 26 parents (16 mothers and 10 fathers) with a history of IPV participated in focus groups concerning their attachment-based group intervention experience in the program Parenting and Violence. The transcripts, subjected to thematic analysis, showed that participants experienced the intervention as supportive and confirming of their role as parents. Read More

Predicting What Will Happen When You Intervene.

Clin Soc Work J 2017;45(3):270-279. Epub 2017 Feb 7.

Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science, London School of Economics, Centre for Humanities Engaging Science and Society, Durham University, Durham, UK.

This paper offers some rules of thumb that practicing social workers can use for case studies that aim to construct, albeit not fully and never entirely reliably, models designed to help predict what will happen if they intervene in specific ways to help this particular client, here and now. We call these 'ex ante case-specific causal models'. 'Ex ante' because they are for before-the-fact prediction of what the likely effects of proposed actions are. Read More

Progress in Social and Educational Inquiry Through Case Study: Generalization or Explanation?

Authors:
Gary Thomas

Clin Soc Work J 2017;45(3):253-260. Epub 2016 Jul 23.

University of Birmingham, Birmingham, B15 2TT UK.

Although much of the most productive research in applied social science is case-based, there is still concern about the restricted utility of such research because of its limited power to offer generalizable findings. Such concern has contributed to a recent trend in policy-making circles-particularly those in education-to prefer experimentally orientated research for insights on policy. The argument is made here that concerns about generalization are exaggerated and that the focus upon them has allowed an evasion of issues about quality of explanation coming from different forms of social inquiry design.

Constructing Couples' Stories: Narrative Practice Insights from a Dyadic Dementia Intervention.

Clin Soc Work J 2014 Mar;42(1):99-100

Turner Geriatric Center, The University of Michigan, 4260 Plymouth Rd., Ann Arbor, MI 48109, USA

Memory loss and dementia can be devastating for both caregivers and care recipients. Narrative therapeutic approaches offer promise, as well as challenges, for social interventions with couples where one partner has dementia. The Couples Life Story Approach is a recently-developed method by which practitioners work with such couples to help them narrate the story of their life together. Read More

Advances in the Conceptualization of Personality Disorders: Issues Affecting Social Work Practice and Research.

Clin Soc Work J 2013 Jun;41(2):155-162

Department of Psychology, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, USA.

This article provides a review of the research that has informed the proposed changes to the DSM-5 conceptualization of personality psychopathology with a focus on implications for social work practice and research. A paradigm shift to a dimensional model is likely to replace the current categorical model of personality disorders and will have profound implications for the profession. While establishing a diagnostic system that is grounded in empirical knowledge is the primary benefit, this tool will also be more consistent with social work's orienting theories and values.

Step-Up: Promoting Youth Mental Health and Development in Inner-City High Schools.

Clin Soc Work J 2012 Jun 10;40(2):175-186. Epub 2011 May 10.

Department of Psychiatry, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, One Gustave L. Levy Place, Box 1230, New York, NY 10029, USA

African American and Latino youth who reside in inner-city communities are at heightened risk for compromised mental health, as their neighborhoods are too often associated with serious stressors, including elevated rates of poverty, substance abuse, community violence, as well as scarce youth-supportive resources, and mental health care options. Many aspects of disadvantaged urban contexts have the potential to thwart successful youth development. Adolescents with elevated mental health needs may experience impaired judgment, poor problem-solving skills, and conflictual interpersonal relationships, resulting in unsafe sexual behavior and drug use.

Latino Adolescent Reproductive and Sexual Health Behaviors and Outcomes: Research Informed Guidance for Agency-based Practitioners.

Clin Soc Work J 2012 Jun 25;40(2):144-156. Epub 2011 Jun 25.

The Center for Latino Adolescent and Family Health, Silver School of Social Work, New York University, New York, NY.

Latinos are the largest and fastest growing minority youth group in the United States. Currently, Latino adolescents experience higher rates of teen pregnancy compared to any other racial or ethnic group and have disproportionately high levels of sexually transmitted infections and HIV. Latino teens are also affected by a number of social problems such as school dropout, poverty, depression and limited access to healthcare, which contributes to disparities in reproductive health outcomes for this population.

A Critical New Pathway Towards Change in Abusive Relationships: The Theory of Transition Framework.

Clin Soc Work J 2010 Dec 28;38(4):418-425. Epub 2010 May 28.

This article explores the use of "Transition Framework" as a conceptual framework for individual and social change. William Bridges introduced Transition Framework in the 1970s as a three-pronged model explaining how people respond to change in their lives. This article argues that such an approach has the potential to help clients recognize and grieve the loss of their old identities, become comfortable with new ways of communicating, understand their cycles of relapse and make positive changes.

HIV/AIDS Risk Reduction Intervention for Women who have Experienced Intimate Partner Violence.

Clin Soc Work J 2010 Jun;38(2):207-216

Meredith Mulraney.

A growing body of literature highlights the association between women who have experienced intimate partner abuse (IPA) and their heightened risk for HIV/AIDS (human immune deficiency syndrome/ acquired immune deficiency syndrome) infection. Finding HIV risk reduction strategies that are contextually relevant for this population is an important public policy priority. This qualitative study researched women who have experienced intimate partner abuse in order to develop a HIV/AIDS risk reduction intervention unique to their circumstances. Read More

USING SOCIAL NETWORK INTERVENTIONS TO IMPROVE MENTALLY ILL CLIENTS' WELL-BEING.

Clin Soc Work J 2006 Mar;34(1):83

Rogério Meireles Pinto, Ph.D., HIV Center for Clinical and Behavioral Studies, New York State Psychiatric Institute and Columbia University, 1051 Riverside Drive, Unit 15, New York, NY 10032, USA;

This paper reviews empirical evidence showing that the structures of the social networks of mentally ill clients influence both their well-being and their use of mental health services. Network interventions that might help clients better address network-related problems, and might help their families improve relationships and prevent caretaker's burn-out are presented. A case illustration will demonstrate how practitioners can assess a client's social network, involve the client's family in treatment, evaluate that treatment, and select tailored interventions.
