Summary

Social Work experts Brenda DuBois and Karla Miley provide a discipline-oriented approach to social work in Social Work: An Empowering Profession, Fifth Edition. This book integrates the CSWE foundational content areas and the contemporary themes of empowerment, strengths, and social justice and fully incorporates the strengths or empowerment perspective. This new edition now includes the full text of the International Federation of Social Workers Code of Ethics, The Ethics of Social Work: Principles and Standards. This book offers readers a strong generalist eco-systems approach while examining values and ethics, cultural diversity, social justice, social work practice, human behavior, populations at risk, and policy and services. The authors detail the roles of the social worker in the functions of consultation, resource management, and education and present an easy-to-understand paradigm that shows entry-level human service professionals how the partnership between practitioners and consumers takes place at all systems levels.
