9780534251048: Direct Social Work Practice: Theory and Skills

This revision gives social work students learning experiences that are as close to real-life practice as they can get before going out into the field. The book has long been praised for the rigor of its theory along with its emphasis on improving and refining the student's assessment, helping, and communication skills through numerous examples, case studies, and relevant practice exercises. Now this edition is earning praise for being even more readable and on the cutting edge with its inclusion of new material about managed care and diversity issues, and its expanded emphasis on client strengths and empowerment. The book also has been infused with new content about working with families and groups.

Review:

"I would definitely adopt this publication. I have used the two previous editions and have been very satisfied. This edition is stronger than the previous two. I like the comprehensiveness, clarity, and detail, along with the use of the most current sources of information to keep the information timely. I have not seen a stronger text for Direct Practice during my 20 years in the field of social work."

"This edition is rich in content preparing students for contemporary practice; it meets many of CSWE's curricular standards. The material on culturally competent practice woven throughout the book is extremely valuable to both students and teachers, as in the inclusion of newer practice models and approaches (cognitive, strength, social skills, stress management)). I find this edition to be more tightly organized. Thank you for the opportunity to preview the text's newest edition. I look forward to using it with future classes!"
