    schema:description ""Vividly portraying the personal and professional lives of social work luminaries from the 19th to the present century, this text links their groundbreaking contributions in social work to current CSWE core competencies. The book focuses on leaders who shaped the field across modern American history -- the Progressive Era, the Great Society, the New Deal, the Postwar period, and others--and examines their lives in the context of the social and historical environment, their contributions to social work, and lessons from their experiences that are still relevant to social work today. Through detailed, engaging life stories and photographs, readers--including undergraduates, graduate students, and practicing social workers--will learn about the profession's rich history rooted in charitable work, 'friendly visitors, ' and social justice advocacy. The book also touches upon the contributions of early social work pioneers as well as those leading us forward in the 21st century. The book will provide important historical groundwork for classes in social welfare policy, introduction to social work, and social work history courses. Chapters include discussion questions and activities to facilitate professional growth and personal development. A robust instructor package offers PowerPoint slides and a sample syllabus. Key Features: Delivers vivid, detailed accounts of leading figures in social work history; Presents lessons directly applicable to social work today; Dovetails with CSWE's 2015 EPAS Competencies; Incorporates discussion questions and activities encouraging professional growth and personal reflection; Includes PowerPoint slides and sample syllabus"--The publisher."@en ;
