Overview

Designed for use in Introduction to Social Work, or any course which introduces students to both practice and policy in social work.

The “generalist” approach currently dominates social work practice. This approach involves viewing intervention at the level of policy, community, and client as parts of a whole system. Johnson's text thoroughly and clearly surveys the profession and practice through this paradigm. The Canadian edition highlights important examples, issues, and policy in Canada.
