DATABASES (Social Work) 

DATABASES (Comprehensive/Multi-Disciplinary) 



A comprehensive guide to social work practice which provides the most recent conceptual knowledge and empirical evidence to aid in the understanding of the rapidly changing field of social work. Each chapter is short and contains practical information in addition to websites and updated references.

This encyclopedia provides authoritative, foundational, interdisciplinary knowledge across the wide range of behavioral and social sciences fields.

Video & Sound Recordings

The UB Libraries support a rich collection of video and sound recordings produced by the American Psychological Association and other publishers. These recordings present real and simulated clinical sessions. They offer a unique opportunity to see and hear the luminaries of the field (e.g., Aaron Beck, Albert Ellis, Virginia Satir) as well as ordinary practitioners in action.

Video:  Please check the UB Catalog for availability. The loan period for the physical materials is 10 days.
