Abstract:

An introductory text taking a discipline approach rather than a social problems approach. Overviews various elements of the field, covering historical and philosophical roots, the professional value base, dimensions of human behavior and social problems, perspectives on diversity, the social service delivery network, and the social work interventions of practice, policy, and research. Boxes feature contemporary issues, examples, and ethical concerns. This third edition contains new case material and expanded material in areas such as social welfare, child welfare, and gerontological social work. Each chapter reflects and integrates the core competencies in the 2008 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) set by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).
