Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Social Work in Canada provides an introduction to the key concepts and contemporary issues in social work in Canada. It is intended for those who may be thinking of entering the social services, for social work students and for allied professionals seeking a basic understanding of the field. Social workers are an essential part of life in Canada. Throughout our lives, we are confronted with unforeseen events such as accidents, illness, unemployment, violence and death. Social service practitioners are concerned with helping individuals, families and communities face such events and move on to enhance their individual and collective well-being. This book introduces the reader to the fundamentals of sound practice in the context of such challenges as inequality, poverty, homelessness, violence, globalization and discrimination.
