A whole-person approach to human problems and social change.

 

Foundations in Human Services Practice: A Generalist Perspective on Individual, Agency, and Community  assists readers with practice essentials for working with clients, agencies, and communities. Readers will explore theories, models, and practices used by human service practitioners. This title exams how helping whole person entails work in many different spheres: direct service (case management theory, case management process, and interviewing), organizational structure (management, supervision, and fundraising), and community (organizing, advocating, and lobbying). Author Judith Herzberg takes a multidisciplinary view examining human services practices in context of social, economic, and political factors.


Standards for Excellence series - Each chapter highlights the national standards set by the Council for Standards in Human Service Education (CSHSE). Critical thinking questions throughout reinforces this integration.
