9780199757251: Social Work Practice: A Critical Thinker's Guide

The first textbook to emphasize the importance of critical thinking skills to practice, this third edition of the classic Social Work Practice retains its unique focus on thinking critically about decisions that social workers make daily. Organized around the phases of helping, this hands-on introduction highlights the decision points that social workers encounter during assessment, intervention, and evaluation. This text, together with its companion website, provides students with a wealth of hands-on exercises for developing and assessing their practice skills. Most importantly, it helps students enhance client well-being by becoming critical thinkers and evidence-informed practitioners.

About the Author:


Eileen Gambrill, PhD, is the Hutto Patterson Charitable Foundation Professor in Child and Family Studies at the University of California, Berkeley.

Review:


"...essential reading for social work practitioners, students, and educators...conceptually rich...The book is so vital to our profession that every social worker should digest it themselves...We use this book in our undergraduate program as a very accessible foundation for ethical and informed practice. Any social worker at any level of training or practice would benefit from reading and contiously referring to this important work."--Research on Social Work Practice


"This book places service users at the centre of attention and Eileen Gambrill does not
mince her words. I particularly liked the author's injunction in the preface where she reminds social workers that we have choice and need courage to ask hard questions of politicians and 'experts', rather than be, as she suggests, 'overwhelmed by seeing too much and doing too little'." --Isabel Martin, Journal of Social Work
