Introduction to Social Work by Lisa E. Cox, Carolyn J. Tice, and Dennis D. Long is an exciting and timely new text that takes readers to the roots of the social work profession, framing its history, practice settings, and career paths through the lens of advocacy. Closely aligned with the latest Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS), the text goes beyond standard coverage to explore such cutting-edge content as military social work, environmental issues, global/international social work, housing, and more. Robust, applied pedagogy and an emphasis on advocacy and reflective practice help underscore the transformative opportunities and contributions of social work on clinical, client, community, national, and international levels.

About the Author:

Lisa E. Cox, PhD, LCSW, MSW, is professor of social work and gerontology and a former social work program coordinator at Stockton University. Prior to 1999, Dr. Cox held a joint faculty appointment at Virginia Commonwealth University’s (VCU) School of Medicine (Richmond AIDS Consortium) and School of Social Work, where she taught MSW students and served as a pioneering AIDS clinical trial social worker with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease–funded Terry Beirn Community Programs for Clinical Research on AIDS. Dr. Cox received BA degrees in history/political science and Spanish from Bridgewater College, and her MSW and PhD degrees from VCU. Since 2007 she has served as research chair for The Stockton Center on Successful Aging. Dr. Cox teaches undergraduate- and graduate-level classes in social work practice, gerontology, HIV/AIDS, research, psychopathology, and cultural neuroscience, and she has co-led study tours to Costa Rica. She was a 2014 faculty scholar with the Geriatric Education Center Initiative and is a governor appointee to the New Jersey Boardof Social Work Examiners. As a long-standing member of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW), Dr. Cox has shared her vast practice experience by holding numerous leadership roles within NASW: National Advisory Board member to the Spectrum HIV/AIDS Project, chair of the Health Specialty Practice Section, Standards for Social Work Practice in Health Care Settings Task Force expert, long-term care liaison to The Joint Commission on Health Care, and unit chairperson. Dr. Cox has presented her scholarship nationally and internationally.

Copies of “Garment Workers of South Jersey: Nine Oral Histories” may be obtained on Amazon.com (ISBN-13: 978-0-9888731-8-6). For relaxation, Dr. Cox plays the piano and enjoys watching baseball.


 

Review:

"I wish we had had this text when I was in my undergraduate social work program."

(Marcia Shobe, University of Arkansas)

"A well-balanced, action-oriented social work book that speaks to advocacy as the heart of the profession."

(Halaevalu F.O. Vakalahi, Morgan State University)

"I can imagine students who have no knowledge of social work reading this text as a part of class and getting excited about the possibilities for the kind of work they could do."

(Alice Gates, University of Portland)

"This is an incredibly readable text."

(John Q. Hodges, University of North Alabama)

"The breadth of coverage is very good, from the basic areas of practice (children, aging, etc.) to ‘newer’ areas like global/international issues and environmentalism. The book’s discussion of international issues makes them seem relevant to today’s social workers wherever they are practicing, and this is an important contribution."

(Carol Jabs, Concordia University Chicago)

Book Description Sage Publications US Public. Mai 2015, 2015. Buch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - Introduction to Social Work is a timely new text by a leading team of authors for introductory courses in social work. This book presents a unique framework for understanding the historical development of social work, the key figures influencing social work history, the various practice settings, and the type of work performed.á This book frames the course by social advocacy and presents all the pertinent information under the lens of social workers as client and community activists. This is a timely approach and will give a clear distinction amongst competing books. In recent years, social workers are taking a much more active approach in client and community advocacy. This involves advocacy at a clinical/client level, but also at a community, national and international level. The book begins with a definition of social work as a profession and then goes into defining social welfare and presenting social welfare history. It then presents the advocacy model which is applied to the various chapters in working with special populations. As other competing texts, the book covers working with children and families, the elderly, the physically and mentally disabled, the homeless and the criminal justice systems. However, the book goes beyond the standard coverage by including chapters on global and environmental issues, the housing crisis/economic system, and collective bargaining. These chapters are unique and willáhelp differentiate the text.áThe book is also closely aligned with CSWE's new EPAS standards and incorporates reflective practice. This is an infusion across the curriculum to help students reflect and grow as they progress through the program. This ôdevelopmentalö approach is seen as a key strength of this proposal. Finally each chapter will begin with an opening case, will contain discussion questions, related organizations and websites and more. Englisch. Seller Inventory # 9781452244341
