Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"We believe as a department that this is the best introductory book on the market. Our students love the book and we anticipate using it for years to come."

"This text provides an in depth overview of social work as a profession, its relationship to social welfare issues in society and the role of social work and the social worker to assess and intervene with individuals, families, groups and organizations."

"It is one of the best texts I have reviewed for thoroughly covering each of the topics that social work and human service majors may encounter. Its ease of readability and its sensitivity to a strengths perspective encourage students to approach these subjects by thinking critically and exploring their personal experiences and opinions with the information presented."
