Synopsis:
This classic social work practice text blends ecosystems and strengths-based approaches with a comprehensive problem-solving process to form a change process that social workers can use with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities. This classic text has always helped introductory students by providing a solid foundation for generalist social work practice. It has a strong theoretical framework that reflects modern theory and methods used in social work practice today. The Eighth Edition builds on the previous edition by developing a stronger focus on strengths and empowerment with diverse populations and a greater emphasis on the environment.

Social Work Practice: A Generalist Approach, Eighth Edition

This classic social work practice text blends ecosystems and strengths based approaches with a comprehensive problem solving process to form a change process social workers can use with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities. Social Work Practice: A Generalist Approach has always helped introductory students by providing a solid foundation for generalist social work practice. It has a strong theoretical framework that reflects modern theory and methods used in social work practice today. The Eighth Edition builds on the previous edition by developing a stronger focus on strengths and empowerment with diverse populations and a greater emphasis on the environment.

Highlights of the Eighth Edition:

  • Utilizes an approach that redefines problem-solving as “a process for facilitating growth and change.”
  • Incorporates most recent CSWE requirements for learning the foundation of social work practice (knowledge, skills, and values), at every level of practice.
  • Places a strong emphasis throughout on the environment, especially as a source of potential strengths and resources for change.
  • To circumvent student confusion, discussions of generalist practice with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities in Part III are now covered separately, in an effort to integrate the change process for various size client systems while still maintaining a generalist approach.
  • Introduces an active approach to working with diverse client populations - including naturalistic inquiry - and encourages students to take on a learning role and develop an approach that is consistent with the norms and expectations of the population being served.
