This text uses the philosophy that people develop a system of values on their relationships with others. These values constitute a moral and pragmatic guide to delivering social services. This revised and updated edition reflects changes in society affecting social work practice - increased attention to family and social violence, and the impact of the drug culture and AIDS.

This classic, best-selling text for beginning social work students introduces the basic components of working with people—observation, assessment, communication, and intervention.
