Summary

This classic social work practice text blends ecosystems and strengths-based approaches with a comprehensive problem-solving process to form a change process that social workers can use with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities. This classic text has always helped introductory students by providing a solid foundation for generalist social work practice. It has a strong theoretical framework that reflects modern theory and methods used in social work practice today. The Eighth Edition builds on the previous edition by developing a stronger focus on strengths and empowerment with diverse populations and a greater emphasis on the environment.
