A social worker’s place within the hierarchy of a nursing home is not always clear, yet the responsibilities are tremendous. Using her almost 20 years of experience as a social worker, Julie Sahlins helps readers narrow the gap between academic training and real-world practice. She presents a practical paradigm with a strong focus on creative use of the professional self, program development, and collaboration to meet the needs of a population that is often vulnerable, frail and isolated.
