Packed with examples, illustrations, and proven learning experiences from the field, DIRECT SOCIAL WORK PRACTICE: THEORY AND SKILLS, Eighth Edition prepares social work students for effective practice. Long acclaimed for its appropriate level of rigor, the book provides an excellent balance of theory and application. Authoritative, well organized, and soundly written, this thorough introduction to practice grounds students in theory while connecting them through vivid examples and vignettes to real-world applications with clients. Many case examples are drawn from social work practitioners as well as the authors’ own practice situations. The text’s integration of the major theories and key skills that direct social work practitioners need to understand and master has earned it a reputation as the classic source for preparing students for direct practice. The book is divided into four parts: Part One provides the foundational/values and knowledge base material; Part Two is devoted to the beginning phase of the helping process; Part Three addresses the middle phase (goal attainment strategies), discussing four intervention approaches; and Part Four clarifies the termination phase of direct practice. Completely up to date with the latest issues and developments, the Eighth Edition also includes an all-new student video demonstration DVD ensuring student learning experiences are as close to real life as possible.

Reflecting the latest practices, accreditation requirements, and developments from the field, the eighth edition of bestselling SOCIAL WORK AND SOCIAL WELFARE gives readers a broad understanding about the social work profession and the role it plays in the social welfare system. Part of the Brooks/Cole Empowerment Series, the text is completely up to date and thoroughly integrates the core competencies and recommended practice behaviors outlined in the current Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) set by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). With its signature systems/ecological approach to understanding social welfare, the book focuses on specific social welfare areas in which social workers play major roles in policy and practice. It adopts the philosophy that there are many reasons why social problems occur, and that students need to understand the history, values, and economic, political, and cultural factors that surround these issues and the attempts to solve or address them. Instead of presenting a specific political perspective, the authors encourage readers to think critically about issues in a new way. Each chapter opens with a vignette about a social worker in a specific setting and closes with information about the career opportunities for social workers in the area discussed.
