Handbook of Military Social Work
edited by Allen Rubin, Eugenia L. Weiss, and Jose E. Coll
566 pages; $65

Designed to help social workers better serve the population of active-duty service members, National Guard and Reserve personnel, veterans, and their families, this book covers the foundational knowledge of military social work, including the history of military social work, the unique culture of the military and how that affects interventions and treatments, ethical issues, women in the military, and secondary trauma. Social workers treating military personnel, veterans, and their families can benefit from the relevant topics covered, including PTSD, co-occuring disorders, traumatic brain injury, substance abuse, and suicide prevention.
