From the Back Cover:

Basic Approach:

 

The fifth edition of Generalist Social Work Practice: A Strengths-Based Problem-Solving Approach addresses individuals, families, and groups experiencing serious problems functioning in increasingly complex environments and organizations and communities experiencing entrenched social justice issues. 

 

Authors have expanded the conceptual framework by including emphasis on an ecological systems perspective, a problem/strengths focus, a strengths/need orientation, a multilevel approach to intervention, an open selection of theories in using interventions, a strengths-based problem-solving process, and an empirical approach to practice/program evaluation. 

 

Highlights of This Edition:

  • The expanded conceptual framework emphasizes client system strengths in problem-solving and goal accomplishment.
  • The focus throughout is preparation for culturally competent, ethical, effective, and accountable generalist social work practice.
  • New learning exercises facilitate development of self-awareness and practice skills.
