From the Back Cover:

"Introduction to Human Services, First Edition"" ""By: "Michelle Martin "(Judson College")Overview: This highly readable human services text offers a generalist view of the breadth and scope of human services. Features: Ten practice settings are explored in depth, including the history and role of the human service professional, common clinical issues, and intervention strategies used within a given practice setting. A chapter on faith-based agencies, a long neglected practice setting, focuses on agencies from three of the world's major religions. Native American issues, including a history of governmental oppression, are covered. A comprehensive chapter on Macro Practice addresses this growing and important field, including social injustice such as crimes against women and children, hate crimes, sweatshops, human sex trafficking, FGM, and economic injustice in developing countries. What Reviewers Are Saying: " """The strengths of this new text include the depth and breadth of topics presented; the application of information to real cases; the comprehensive look at the nature and qualifications of the profession; and the organization of the material. I would definitely consider using this text for my introductory course in human services."" --Joyce Clohessey, Westmoreland County Community College ""The approach taken by Martin is refreshing, as it 'cuts to the chase' of the helping profession. Many students enter the field of helping with only an abstract sense of their career path. Martin's approach would assist students in having a more concrete view of the populations and issues in the helping professions as well as the individual skills and knowledge base needed by the professional. I especially enjoy the idea of having more information on faith based work, as many of my students express an interest in this area.""" "--Stephanie Ziegler Briggs, Central Piedmont Community College [ Insert MyHelpingLab Advertisement ]
