Publisher's summary

This audiobook provides social workers, outreach clinicians, case managers, and concerned community members with a pretreatment guide for assisting homeless couples, youth, and single adults. Chapters explore policy and research accompanied by narratives that trace a person's journey from homelessness to housing and beyond. The interrelationship between Homeless Outreach and Housing First is examined in detail to inform program development and hands-on practice. Pretreatment Guide for Homeless Outreach & Housing First shares five detailed case studies from the field to elucidate effective ways of helping and to demonstrate how the most vulnerable among us can overcome trauma and homelessness.

Listeners will:

  • Expand their assessment skills and discover new interventions for helping people who have experienced long-term or chronic homelessness.
  • Understand and be able to integrate the stages of common language construction with their own practice.
  • Learn about the positive measurable impact of a Housing First approach and its moral, fiscal, and quality-of-life implications.
  • Understand how to better integrate program policy and supervision with Homeless Outreach & Housing First initiatives.
  • Learn how to utilize a pretreatment approach with couples, youth, and unaccompanied adults experiencing untreated major mental illness and addiction.

"Jay S. Levy's book is essential reading to both people new to the movement to end homelessness and folks who have been in the trenches for many years. Learn how to do effective outreach with the chronic homeless population, and the ins and outs of the Housing First model. The personal stories and the success cases will give inspiration to work even harder to help both individuals and for ending homelessness in your community." (Michael Stoops, Director of Community Organizing, National Coalition for the Homeless, Washington, DC)
