Client Violence in Social Work Practice: Prevention, Intervention, and Research reflects Newhill's vast in-depth knowledge and research findings and offers helpful topical outlines for supervisors and teachers in addition to directions on teaching methods and invaluable content on this aspect of violence. The book includes risk factors, how to make an assessment, how to handle a violent encounter, how to relate to a violent client, and much more. Just as importantly, Newhill urges readers to help their institutions establish safety rules for the protection of all employees and, hopefully, prevent violence in the agencies and clinics. All of us have read in newspapers about a client who attacked staff of a child welfare or mental health organization. How many organizations and therapists have asked themselves what they would do in the event of an attack? For those who teach, the book includes a teaching outline of every important chapter on this scary topic that we don't like to think about until we or one of our supervisees, friends, or colleagues is attacked.
