Summary

This best-selling text continues to offer a comprehensive introduction to the field of social work with a unique focus on the diverse groups to whom social workers provide services, including children, older adults, disabled persons, and members of minority racial and ethnic groups. Social Work: A Profession of Many Faces, now in its Tenth Edition, has educated approximately 150,000 students since 1977. This text includes historical material on the emergence of social work as a profession, the areas and groups where human services are provided, and career opportunities for social workers today. The book reflects up-to-date empirical data about where social workers are employed, what positions they hold, what personal characteristics they bring to their practice, and the competencies required to perform their work.
