This popular social work practice text builds on its strengths of accessibility and use of a comprehensive approach that incorporates the ecosystems and strengths perspectives.
This text has always helped introductory students by providing a solid framework for the theory and methods of social work practice. The new edition incorporates CSWE requirements, including a stronger focus on the strengths or empowerment approach throughout, as well as greater emphasis on the environment. Part One provides a strong theoretical foundation for generalist practice, including the knowledge, skills, and values required of a social worker; the social worker's role in facilitating change and growth; and social work as an intervention into human transactions. Part Two studies the interactional process involving the worker, various sizes of client systems, and the environment. Part Three covers every step of the change process in detail, including assessment, planning, direct and indirect practice actions, evaluation, and termination. Diversity and issues related to managed care and welfare reform are incorporated throughout the text and in case examples.
