9780205795024: Introduction to Human Services: Through the Eyes of Practice Settings (2nd Edition)

This highly readable human services text offers a generalist view of the breadth and scope of human services.

 

This text uses various practice settings as a lens for examining the role and functions of the human service professional.  Because the human services profession grew out of a concern about social problems that prevented people from getting their needs met, it is important to examine the generalist role of human service professionals.  In addition, exploring the nature of working with individuals, families, or groups is more meaningful when explored within the context of a particular practice setting.
