Students will enjoy readingIntroduction to Human Services: Through the Eyes of Practice Settings, which explores relevant issues within the human services field by looking at them within the context of the most common practice settings. Ten practice settings are explored comprehensively, including the history and role of the human service professional, common clinical issues, as well as intervention strategies used in practice settings such as child welfare, mental health, substance abuse, the elderly, and domestic violence. Each chapter thoroughly explores recent research and policy, providing students with the most up-to-date information and perspective on important social issues and target populations. This is one of the only texts to include a chapter on faith-based agencies, which focuses on the long and distinguished history of religious organizations providing services to the needy. Native American issues are explored in-depth providing insight into this special population and its unique relationship to the federal government. A unique chapter on macro practice is also included; this is an often-neglected practice field that warrants increased attention. The International chapter focuses on human rights issues on a global level, exploring such issues as hate crimes, human sex trafficking, FGM, refugees and economic injustice in developing countries.
