Here, in a single volume, is the core knowledge of the practice of social work, thoroughly updated in a new second edition. The book covers the core content required in foundation practice courses in master's-degree programs accredited by the Council on Social Work Education. The book covers all the essentials: knowledge needed for practice, skills for practice with systems of all sizes, ecosystems, and the use of research. Written at a more challenging level than most foundation texts, this educational resource is ideal for graduate courses. With detailed emphasis on today's best practices, this book integrates concept and theory with skills-building exercises. It is an excellent text for preparing students for real-world experience.
