The Social Work Experience: An Introduction to Social Work and Social Welfare
Mary Ann Suppes, (Marquette University)
Carolyn Cressy Wells, (Marquette University)
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.
