This book is a compilation of real cases submitted by social workers and faculty teaching social work courses. The cases help students understand how clients, issues, and agencies interact, as well as see how that understanding connects with the actual "doing" of generalist social work practice. The cases reflect a broad range of courses in the social work curriculum and the most current CSWE standards.
