This text introduces, defines, and analyzes the movement behind human services theory and application through articles by well-known scholars in the field. The text leads the reader on a path from the very basics and origins of human services to information on working with clients such as children, families, and special populations, to familiarizing readers with the laws and ethics of human services.

Highlights of the Third Edition:

  • “Special Focus” features allow students to concentrate on timely applications of important concepts such as psychotherapy, substance abuse, and teen pregnancy.
  • Offers a number of articles by human services experts on issues such as welfare reform, youth in human services, child abuse, community organizing, disabilities, and HIV/AIDS.
  • The Third Edition has been reorganized into seven parts to effectively introduce students to human services, focus on skills students will need to deal with different groups of clients, and report on law, ethics, influences, and trends in the field.
  • New chapters offer comprehensive information on human service historical roots, techniques and skills in interviewing, and legal foundations in human services.
