This revision of the authors' best-selling text continues to inspire student interest in the profession of social work, while helping them to understand the role that the profession plays in the social welfare system. The authors' systems/ecological approach to understanding social welfare focuses on specific social welfare areas in which social workers play major roles in policy and practice. The authors encourage students to consider the many reasons social problems occur and to begin to think critically about the issues in a new way, drawing on the book's coverage of the history, values, economic, political, and cultural factors that affect social work and social welfare. The book gives students a broad understanding of the profession of social work itself, including a brief history of its origin, a discussion of various theoretical principles, as well as applications of these principles to common social problems.
