Learn how social workers use their professional expertise to assist people.

This text is part of the Connecting Core Competencies Series.

The Social Work Experience: An Introduction to Social Work and Social Welfare introduces students to the profession of social work including eight major fields of practice, and provides in-depth discussion of social welfare policy, its history, contemporary issues, and probable future trends. The book helps students understand how social workers use their professional expertise to assist people in solving a wide variety of problems to improve their lives. There are three major parts:

The first part, Social Work and its Context, comprises four chapters which introduce the profession of social work, provide theoretical perspectives underlying generalist practice, investigate the concept of social justice, and explore social welfare policy and its history.

The second part, Professional Practice Settings, offers an in-depth discussion of eight fields of practice: family and children's services, mental health, health care, schools, older adult services, criminal justice, and developmental disabilities.

The third and final part, A Look to the Future, views the profession through the eyes of futurists and explores the challenges and opportunities that await new social workers.
