Summary

Show future Human Service Professionals how history, politics, and the economy shape social welfare programs and policies
An Introduction to Human Services: Policy and Practice puts the field of human services into a historical context, provides insights into the social welfare field, and gives concrete examples of how primary intervention strategies are put into daily practice in human service agencies. The text presents the many career options offered in the field of human services and discusses the stresses that a human service worker will face in day-to-day work, with practical suggestions for avoiding burnout. The 9th Edition explores the current state of the field of human services with new and updated coverage, including: an expanded chapter on working with diversity, with updated discussions of immigration and working with LGBTQ clients (Ch. 7); an expanded chapter on social welfare programs and policies (Ch. 6); and an increased focus on practical applications.
