Synopsis:

Complete, up-to-date coverage of social welfare programs and policies with special coverage of how history, politics, and the economy shape these programs


This text puts the field of human services into a historical context, provides insights into the social welfare field, and gives concrete examples of how primary intervention strategies are put into daily practice in human service agencies.


It presents the many options offered in the field of human services and discusses the stresses that a human service worker will face in day-to-day work, with practical suggestions for avoiding burnout. The text compares the U.S. social welfare systems to systems in other countries, and uses a strong multicultural and social systems approach that distinguishes it from other texts.

 

Teaching & Learning Experience

  • Engage Students – Outstanding pedagogy, including examples, cases, anecdotes, and interviews, keeps students interested.
  • Explore Current Issues – Contemporary issues are incorporated throughout the text to provide students with the most up-to-date coverage; topics include: cyberbullying, immigration, and health care reform.
  • Support Instructors – An Instructor’s Manual and Test Bank, Computerized Test Bank (MyTest), and PowerPoint presentations, and BlackBoard and WebCT Test Item File provide instructors with additional support.

 

From the Back Cover: Known for its engaging writing style and use of many current examples and cases of human service practitioners at work, An Introduction to Human Services is one of the leading texts in the introductory human services market.

What reviewers are saying about the Sixth Edition. . .

The book’s treatment of policy issues is far more extensive than is typical of intro textbooks. . . . Consistent with this is its coverage of the social welfare system as it currently exists, including the major cornerstone programs (TANF, WIC, Food Stamps, SSI, etc.) that any well-informed worker needs to know about to serve clients well.
Pamela Kiser, Elon University
