Thisátext bridges the gap by offering learning activities that can be worked in both settings. The book is divided into four main parts that accounts for the major areas of social work practice. Part I covers the foundations of practice, including self awareness and knowing and learning about the community within one will practice. The second part deals with direct practice and covers individual assessment and group work. The third part focuses on agency practice and finally the last part covers special issues for consideration, including multicultural practice, law-informed practice, ethics, specialist and comparative practice.
