About the Book

Social Work and Social Welfare: An Invitation is a best-selling text and website for introductory courses in social work. It provides students with the knowledge, skills, and values that are essential for working with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities, in a variety of practice settings. The sixth edition has been updated to reflect the contemporary world in which today's social workers practice, with current demographic, statistical, legislative, policy, and research information; sensitive discussions of ethical dilemmas; and fresh profiles of social workers with first-person narratives to demonstrate the dynamic fi eld students will be joining. To address the dramatic changes in the world in which social workers practice since the fifth edition was released, we have revised and added content:

  • Centering diversity, equity, and inclusion to elevate anti-racist and anti-oppressive practice, including a critical review of our profession's history.
  • Demonstrating how the COVID-19 pandemic exposed and intensified inequities as well as ways in which social workers responded to the needs of their clients, organizations, and communities.
  • Updating language to reflect commitment to and respect for inclusivity, gender identity, and nongendered identities.

The content in this text is supported by a range of fully updated instructor led and student resources that are available on its companion website, www. routledgesw.com. Assignments, exercises, and readings that help instructors and students apply the concepts and theories the textbook reviews may be found there, as well as extensive interactive case studies to engage students in some of society's most challenging issues.
