Overview

A basic textbook for social work practice courses at the undergraduate and post-graduate level that provides a generalist and problem-solving orientation. The book seeks to establish a "task-centered" methodology -a structured, short-term, problem-solving approach -applicable across systems at five levels of practice: the individual, the family, the group, organizations, and communities. Each section discusses pretreatment considerations right through to termination. A numbering system helps the reader follow particular topics and checklists, questions for consideration, and practice exercises help students monitor their understanding and skill development.

Editorial Reviews

Bradford W. Sheafor
Fills a gap in the social work literature. . . . In this thorough and carefully structured book, Tolson, Reid, and Garvin not only demonstrate how the task-centered approach can be applied to problem solving with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities, but also identify the adaptions that must be made to apply the task-centered model at each level.
