Product Overview

Originally Published in 1980, this seminal work was the first to introduce an ecological perspective into social work practice. New to this edition is an examination of major changes in our socioeconomic and political landscape, including the threat of terrorism, international trade agreements, and the conservative revolution; a discussion of new developments in ethics and standards of practice; additional information on community structures and legislative processes; and a restored chapter on the history of social work practice, covering such trends as managed care, empirically and evidence-based practice, resilience, empowerment, strength-based and feminist practice, and a push toward greater diversity.
