Description

The text focuses on practical aspects of generalist social work practice from an ecological systems perspective. It introduces students to a problem-solving process that can be used with individuals, families, groups, and communities. This edition incorporates knowledge of human diversity (including cultural diversity, gender, sexual preference, and differences based on geographic location, age and personality, and other special populations such as the homeless and victims of AIDS) throughout the text as central to effective social work practice.show more
