About the Book

The new edition of The Practice of Generalist Social Work teaches and helps students apply the skills for micro, macro, and mezzo practice. The third edition contains over 80 pages of new content, including many skill-based guides to subjects such as cognitive behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing. Quick Guides, a new feature in the third edition, are tools that will be useful to students in everyday practice.

Routledgesw.com now contains 6 cases; the authors have created a new case, Brickville, for this book. Within Brickville, students work with a mezzo case embedded within a macro case to help a family in a community facing gentrification. Instructor materials include extra readings; PowerPoints; test questions; annotated links; syllabi for one-, two- or three-semester courses; and EPAS guidelines.

With 13 chapters and 6 cases, this book works with a one-, two-, or three-semester practice course. This book is also available in customized versions for your two- and three-semester courses (click the links below):
