About this title


This well-known and widely used text is intended to provide entry-level professional social workers with a foundation of knowledge and values needed to practice from a generalist perspective---focusing on culturally competent, ethical, effective, and accountable generalist social work practice skills. 


This thoroughly revised edition explores the strengths-based problem-solving approach in all phases of the General Method; moving away from a deficit perspective towards an asset/resource perspective.

From the Back Cover:

Basic Approach:


The fifth edition of Generalist Social Work Practice: A Strengths-Based Problem-Solving Approach addresses individuals, families, and groups experiencing serious problems functioning in increasingly complex environments and organizations and communities experiencing entrenched social justice issues. 


Authors have expanded the conceptual framework by including emphasis on an ecological systems perspective, a problem/strengths focus, a strengths/need orientation, a multilevel approach to intervention, an open selection of theories in using interventions, a strengths-based problem-solving process, and an empirical approach to practice/program evaluation. 


Highlights of This Edition:

  • The expanded conceptual framework emphasizes client system strengths in problem-solving and goal accomplishment.
  • The focus throughout is preparation for culturally competent, ethical, effective, and accountable generalist social work practice.
  • New learning exercises facilitate development of self-awareness and practice skills.


Here’s what the reviewers are saying...

“I applaud the revised approach—it reads very clearly. I see the strengths approach reflecting how I teach this class and it is very compatible with CSWE requirements. I would adopt this text--it relates well to my syllabi, is clearly written, and effective."

–Margaret Twiname-Dungan, St. Cloud State University (NOTE that she doesn’t want her comments used on the website or online marketing).


“The Foundation knowledge for social work practice and Foundation methods/skills for social work provide an excellent overview for the course and necessary information for a student to understand social work practice.”

 –Ronald Dolon, Ball State University


“The overall organization fits well with the way practice reality occurs.”

 –Gary L. Villereal, Western Kentucky University
