This ninth edition of Techniques and Guidelines for Social Work Practicehas been carefully updated and streamlined to minimize length and maximize content. It provides students with easy access to the most current information on fundamental techniques and useful guidelines for social work practice from the generalist perspective. #xA0; The application of techniques and guidelines in client situations is inadequate and potentially harmful unless they are used in the context of highly professional social work practice. Seven chapters overview this context and address the domain of social work, the art and science required, the roles/principles/practice frameworks that guide interventions, and stress the importance of evidence-based practice and critical thinking when guiding a planned change process with clients. #xA0; The remainder of this text describes and illustrates multiple tools often used by social workers for both direct and indirect intervention activities. Touching upon everything from creating an effective helping relationship to guidelines for evaluating client change, the content of this text is so widely applicable it is a valuable aid for both students and professional social workers.
