For years, clinical social workers have found graphic tools such as ecomaps & genograms useful for presenting data in an integrated, comprehensive manner. However, busy practitioners often find producing graphic images too time-consuming for regular application. MORE THAN A THOUSAND WORDS, by Mark A. Mattaini, shows how computerized graphic techniques can simplfy the process of integrating complicated transactional data & reduce the time & effort required to produce graphic simulations of client situations. This book presents practical tools & techniques that the reader can use immediately. In addition, it presents a range of graphic techniques that allow the reader to modify graphic visualization concepts for practice & practice research at all system levels (individual, family, group, organizational, & community), in a manner consistent with the needs of foundation practice courses. Interactive graphic software & an accompanying manual for MORE THAN A THOUSAND WORDS may be purchased separately. The program (designed for Windows on IBM PCs & compatibles or Hypercard on the Macintosh) acts like a "social work CT scan" to examine & integrate clinical data at the intrapersonal, family, immediate environmental, & sociocultural levels.Mattaini, Mark A. is the author of 'More Than a Thousand Words Graphics for Clinical Practice' with ISBN 9780871012241 and ISBN 0871012243.
