Fifth Edition

 

 

By:

The Social Work Experience: An Introduction to Social Work and Social Welfare, 5/e,  helps students understand how social workers use their professional expertise to help people solve a wide variety of problems and improve their lives.  It not only introduces the profession of social work and its fields of practice, but also provides students with a clear understanding of social welfare policy, its history and contemporary issues.

 

The fifth edition contains three major parts:

 

Social Work and its Context- introduces professional social work, discusses theoretical perspectives for generalist practice, and guides students in their understanding of poverty and populations-at-risk.   

 

Professional Practice Settings- offers an in-depth discussion of eight fields of practice: family and children’s services, mental health, health care, schools, substance abuse, older adult services, criminal justice, and developmental disabilities.  

 

A Look to the Future- views the future of the profession through the eyes of futurists and highlights the challenges and opportunities that await social workers.

 

 

New Features in the Fifth Edition —

  • New chapter,   Social Justice and Social Welfare Policy , helps students appreciate the critical relationship between justice and policy.
  • New Case Studies, including international case studies, new internet research activities, updated websites, and more!
  • Updated data that incorporatescensus-based data, Bureau of Labor Statistics projections, social work employment data, research from various countries, and more!

I got this textbook for a course in social work. Actually it turned me off of the field altogether. There was such an obvious bias against, even rather contempt? for any value that would be considered conservative. Some people have traditional values in many areas but that does not mean they don't care about people that are poor or hurting. I was very disappointed.
