B>" Providing a broad overview of the field and profession of social work, this book stresses the link between professional education and practice. It offers both a historical perspective on the development of social work and current social work practice paradigms, with special consideration of current social problems. The introductory theoretical base of the text highlights the trend toward the generalist perspective and model of practice. Part I provides a historical and theoretical context for social work, including its relationship to other social services. Part II discusses social work practice with individuals, groups, and communities, including case work, administration, and research. Social work services are discussed in Part III, including the role of social work in mental health, health care, the public schools, public welfare, child and family services, Social Security, the correctional system, the workplace, and working with the aged. Areas receiving special attention include drug abuse, work with minorities, and social work in rural areas. Part IV covers professional development, including the current focus on prevention and future opportunities. For anyone considering social work as a profession or interested in a current overview of the field.
