Summary

Through its discipline-oriented approach to social work, this introductory textbook integrates foundational content areas from the Council on Social Work Education with the contemporary themes of empowerment, strengths, and social justice. The fifth edition of the first textbook to fully incorporate the strengths or empowerment perspective takes a strong generalist eco-systems approach while examining values and ethics, cultural diversity, social justice, social work practice, human behavior, populations at risk, and policy and services. The text details the roles of the social worker as consultant, resource manager, and educater, and presents an easy-to-understand paradigm that shows students how the partnership between practitioners and consumers takes place at all systems levels.
