This abridged version of the fifth edition of The Practice of Generalist Social Work expands its foundational and integrated coverage of social work values, ethics, competencies, and behaviors as they converge and operate within dynamic practice settings with individuals and families. Over the course of reading, students will become closely familiar with the purpose of social work, as well as the importance of the profession's core competencies. Through case studies, examples, exercises, and updated connections to the Grand Challenges of Social Work, which add vibrancy to the concepts and theories that are introduced throughout the text, students will understand how ethics, relationship building, and the practice framework apply to client work with individuals and families and learn how to engage in culturally competent and evidence-based practice.
The text also comes with a rich companion website that includes instructor support materials and realistic case studies that connect learning to practice. Please visit www.routledgesw.com to explore the cases and access the additional resources
