A unique aspect for this book is that it pays special consideration to enhancing social justice by working with individuals and families who have been historically oppressed. Although content is interwoven throughout the book, there is a special chapter on enhancing social justice which is written by known experts in the area. The book takes a broad based approach and thus is highly relevant for courses typically called "Practice I" or Foundations of Practice, which are offered in BSW programs and first year MSW programs.
The book is thoroughly updated, including more content that will engage students, including:
-Chapter opening vignettes
-More excercises and role-play activities embedded within the chapters
-Questions for critical thinking
-Bolded/glossary terms highlighted within text
-Margin notes to enhance student comprehension
-New feature of "social work journal/diary" which details a 'day in the life' of a social worker in a variety of settings.
-IRCD and student study site
