Key Benefit of Book: This introductory textbook distinguishes itself from others, because it takes a discipline approach rather than a social problems approach to framing the foundations of social work knowledge, values, and skills. It presents an easy-to-understand paradigm that shows how the partnership between practitioners and consumers takes place at all systems levels. Key Topics: Integrates the CSWE foundational content areas and the contemporary themes of empowerment, strengths, and social justice. Topics include values and ethics, cultural diversity, social justice, social work practice, human behavior, populations at risk, and policy and services. This fifth edition continues to feature empowerment-based social work, the strengths perspective, and diversity. Market: Designed specifically for human service professionals and social workers, as well as Sociology and Social Work undergraduate and graduate majors entering these fields.
