Overview

In this fourth edition of a social work standard, Leon Ginsberg and Julie Miller-Cribbs offer an updated version of the text that has introduced thousands of social work students to the defining policies and procedures of the profession. Concise yet comprehensive, the volume surveys the span of social welfare history, explains the elements of social welfare policy education, and describes the impact of executive, legislative, and judicial initiatives on the delivery of social services.

With this edition, the authors cover all the required content areas for the social welfare policy and service sequence as specified in the Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards of the Council on Social Work Education’s Commission on Accreditation.

Editorial Reviews

Social Work
"This book is an invaluable resource for any faculty member teaching in the broad area of social problems, policies, and programs or in the foundation area of social welfare policy."
Booknews
Ginsberg (social welfare policy, U. of South Carolina College of Social Work) analyzes the policies used in the US to address social problems and to develop social welfare programs. Previously updated in 1996; this new edition addresses American social welfare policy through the 1990s, particularly changes brought about by the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996.
