Stambler, Moses
This literature review focuses on social group work in the hospital setting. The first section addresses the need for a holistic approach within a typology of illness, and discusses the social work role and intervention tasks required at different stages of illness, i.e., diagnosis, adaptation to long-term illness, and the ending of the illness episode. A chart is provided for social group work intervention possibilities. Other sections address the following topics: Nature of the Illness-Defining Time Parameters, Group Format, and Goals; Chronic Illness; Social Nature of Chronic Illness; Value of the Group as a Support for Chronic Illness; Types of Groups in Hospital Settings; Social Group Work in a Medical Setting; Psychosocial Implications of Specific Physical Disorders, for Group Work in Hospitals. This last section deals with these specific disorders: cancer, home hemodialysis, hysterectomy, burn victims, epilepsy, neonatal intensive care, and newborn infant death. A reference list is included. (WAS)
