With its focus on empowerment and extensive coverage of ethics and values, Generalist Social Work Practice, 6/e, provides excellent coverage of: evidence-based practice, policy practice, social justice and human rights, end-of-life-care, diversity and special population groups, including immigrants, veterans, and older adults.
Each chapter reflects and integrates the core competencies in the 2008 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) set by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). End-of-chapter assessment reinforces this integration, and MySocialWorkLab.com activities support the mastery of CSWE's core competencies.
