A Brief Introduction to Social Work Theory
Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: This is a uniquely Canadian text that reflects Canadian values and experiences. It introduces the fundamentals of sound social work practice in the context of such challenges as poverty, discrimination, violence, and economic globalization. Widely used in introductory social work and social service worker programs across Canada, Social Work in Canada provides an introduction to the key concepts and contemporary issues. This book is intended for students currently studying social work, for those who may be thinking of entering the social services as a career, and for allied professionals seeking a basic understanding of the field. The full range of social work practice settings is examined, including: background information on the social work profession itself, the welfare state and income security in Canada, children and youth, aboriginal communities, anti-racism perspectives, practice issues with persons with disabilities, the gay and lesbian communities, the elderly, and international social work practice.
