Understand the role the profession plays in the social welfare system with SOCIAL WORK AND SOCIAL WELFARE. This text takes a generalist practice perspective in addressing social welfare issues within the context of the systems/ecological framework and the overarching framework used by generalist practitioners as they intervene to address social welfare needs at the individual, family, group, organization, community, and societal levels. You'll consider the many reasons why social problems occur and will think critically about issues in a new way, drawing on the book's coverage of history, values, and the economic, political, and cultural factors that affect social work and social welfare. You'll also develop a broad understanding of the profession of social work itself, through the book's extensive coverage of the social work profession, a brief history of its origin, a discussion of various theoretical principles, and applications of these principles to common social problems.
