Here's what the reviewers are saying...

 

This new emphasis on the ubiquity of ‘management’ at all levels of social work practice…gives this text the widest possible applicability to the current and future social work profession, and to those who teach at all levels and concentrations of social work education, both in the academy and in fields of practice.” 

Nancy W. Veeder, Boston College

The Social Worker as Manager:  A Practical Guide to Success

Fifth Edition

 

By: Robert W. Weinbach (University of South Carolina)

 

 

Basic Approach:

 

The fifth edition of The Social Worker as Manager, designed to help social workers perform management tasks at any level within an organization, combines the presentation of management theory and practical advice.  

 

This text was written for both students and practitioners who find themselves with increased management responsibilities.  It describes the functions and tasks that all managers perform–at the same time, emphasizing the uniqueness of human service organizations.  The new edition is easy to read, conversational, and contains many new and revised features.

 

New to This Edition: 

  • A discussion of organizational culture theory (Chapter 3) is supported by numerous references in subsequent chapters.
  • A new section on job analysis, recruitment, and hiring of staff (Chapter 5) emphasizes legal, ethical, and diversity issues andprovides practical advice for performing important management tasks.
  • The use of committees and task forces is described along with their advantages and disadvantages (Chapter 8).
  • A realistic discussion of boards (Chapters 10 and 11) helps the reader to know how different types of boards function, how and why they often function differently, and how these differences affect social workers as managers.
  • An updated section on technology management (Chapter 11) reflects the increased importance of information technology in today’s human service organizations and how this affects the role of the manager.

What the reviewers are saying…

I will definitely continue to use the text because I think it does a wonderful job conceptualizing the issues related to management, and my students have stated that it is very easy to read.

 —Jenny Jones, University of Tennessee

I needed the book for class; found myself reading it and using it as a reference for other classes as well. It was a well-written text book. I purchased an e-version using it with Kindle on my IPad. Of all the different ereaders I used this semester (purchased all ebooks) Kindle was the most efficient. No delays or problems using highlighting or search functions. Overall a good experience.
