This best-selling text continues to offer a comprehensive introduction to the field of social work with a unique focus on the diverse groups to whom social workers provide services; including children, older adults, disabled persons, and members of minority racial and ethnic groups.
It covers the emergence of the profession of social work, career oportunities for social workers, and the values and competencies required of social workers.
Timely issues that this edition addresses include the following: the events of 9/11 and their dramatic influence on human services in the United States; the United States involvement in Middle East warfare; the physical and emotional damage to individuals involved in Middle East warfare; and the 2000 Census---how substantial changes in the U.S. population suggest a need for realignment of social services.

Social Work: A Profession of Many Faces, now in its ninth edition, has stood the test of time as an introduction to the profession of social work. This book includes historical material on the emergence of social work as a profession, the areas and groups where human services are provided, and career opportunities for social workers today.
The book reflects up-to-date empirical data about where social workers are employed, what positions they hold, what personal characteristics they bring to their practice, and the competencies required to perform their work. The main focus of the text is on the various groups (most of them disenfranchised), to whom social workers provide services, including children, older adults, women, disabled persons, and members of minority racial and ethnic groups. A new chapter entitled "Social Work Throughout the World" helps readers gain a broader understanding of how the profession of social work has evolved in different parts of the world.
