Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This very practical book provides a nuts-and-bolts introduction to case management. The book was initially written by the author as a manual for beginning case managers, and it is still focused on how to actually track and manage a case load.

The book is geared to entry-level professionals, and provides plenty of actual case examples to illustrate the pitfalls and high points of case management. Chapter 7 includes practical tips based on real training situations, such as how to interview clients. A list of key terms at the end of every chapter provides a focus for student review. Discussion questions at the end of every chapter are taken from real-life case management practice. Bibliographies at the ends of the chapters and at the end of the text provide suggestions for further research. The glossary at the end of the book establishes standard definitions of terms commonly used in practice.

For anyone interested in social work, nursing, psychology, or public administration.

Format: Paperback
This book provides a very comprehensive overview of the practice of Generalized Case Management. It is written in a very easy to read format, and is loaded with the most up to date information on the field.
I highly recommend this book to those entering GCM as well as a great reference for those of us veterans already in the field.

Format: Paperback
The Practice of Generalist Case Management is a decent book for one wanting an overview of case management duties. The book is written in text book format, yet lacks some organizational qualities of putting information in hiarchical format to be remembered easily as most text books. I am not saying the book has problems with its organizational structure but for someone new to case management the structure within chapters is a little awkward.

Holt has put together a solid overview of generalist case management. Although written for graduate students and working professionals, I have used it with independent study and directed reading courses for senior undergraduates planning to enter an MSW program. They have given me positive feedback about the value of this book during their internships in social and human services agencies. A good counterbalance to the over-specialization that hit social work education about 3 decades ago.
