Bernard StritihSelf-help Groups for Mental Health and Social Problems: a Valuable Form of Work on the Border Between Psychiatry and Social Work - Pg. 97
At present, the composition of people in need of psychiatric and social work assistance is changing, and at the same time the circle of people interested in these areas is changing. A significant part of the users of these services are people with archaic self-impairments and people who have experienced deeper personality injuries due to social factors. Especially in their case it is evident, how very limited the possibilities of counseling work within social services are. Therefore, new forms of organized networking of people - self-help groups - are emerging. The article describes the development of these groups, the differences between therapeutic groups and self-help groups, the dynamics in the groups and the basic methodological principles.
Pavla Rapoša TajnšekInformal Activities Are an Essential Component of Social Work - Pg. 120
Various studies have confirmed the existence and importance of informal work and assistance in our society. These forms of assistance need to be developed especially in environments where they do not occur spontaneously. Social work, in terms of its orientation and role, preserves and encourages these forms of voluntary work, which is not yet evolved as much as we would like because it faces several obstacles. The tendency to develop volunteer work also coincides with the tendency to outsource services in social activities. Although volunteering has many benefits, it can also be subject to manipulation.

Jože RamovšWorking with Irreversible Alcoholics - Pg. 16
Irreversible alcoholics or alcoholics with incurable and irreversible impairments are a special category in the systematic alcohol literature, as well as alcoholics. Irreversible alcoholics are frequent clients of social work, but a methodology of social work with them has not yet been developed. The discussion deals with the phenomenology of irreversible alcoholics, giving a special attention to the criteria for the identification of irreversibility of a specific alcoholic. The majority of the discussion is dedicated to the methodology of social work with irreversible alcoholics, based on the findings and experiences within the work organization.
