A conceptual and practical presentation of the strengths perspective in social work.
Part of the Advancing Core Competencies Series, a unique series that helps students taking advanced social work courses apply CSWE’s core competencies and practice behaviours examples to specialised fields of practice.
The Strengths Perspective in Social Work Practice, 6th edition, presents both conceptual and practical elements of the strengths perspective - from learning about and practicing the strengths perspective to using the strengths perspective with older adults, the chronically ill, and substance abusers.
Many of the chapters address recent events –from the tragic shooting in Tucson to the uprisings in the Middle East. Each chapter begins with a section from an expert in the field.
