Common human needs
This book was written to provide training for public assistance workers who had the difficult task of administering financial aid to families in economic distress. Today, social workers in public agencies face an even more difficult task because the emphasis has changed from human rights and human needs to economic self-reliance. Even the most experienced practitioner will benefit from frequent rereading of this book. Section headings: Significance of Public Assistance for the Individual and Society -- Place of Public Assistance in a Democracy; Basic Motivations and Adaptations in Normal Human Behaviour. Common Human Needs in Relation to the Provision of Public Assistance -- Infancy and Childhood; Adulthood and Old Age; The Handicapped; The Family. Supervision -- Some General Principles in the Light of Human Needs and Behaviour Motivations.
