Drawing on over 20 years of practicing social work and more than 15 years of teaching in the field, Cynthia Bisman has developed the components of practice (relationship, assessment, communication, self awareness/use of self, and intervention) into general principles that all practitioners can follow, regardless of their particular theoretical approach or specialized training. Through the use of case studies, this book articulates and analyzes professional social work case work practice and answers such questions as "What is practice?," "Is ther a theory of practice apart from specific interventions?," and "How does one execute practice?" Readers will learn not only specific skills, but also how to think about what they are doing; how to understand practice within context of the profession's values, ethics, and historical traditions; and how to view the relationship of practice to policy issues.
