Reflecting the latest practices, accreditation requirements, and developments from the field, the eighth edition of bestselling SOCIAL WORK AND SOCIAL WELFARE gives readers a broad understanding about the social work profession and the role it plays in the social welfare system. Part of the Brooks/Cole Empowerment Series, the text is completely up to date and thoroughly integrates the core competencies and recommended practice behaviors outlined in the current Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) set by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). With its signature systems/ecological approach to understanding social welfare, the book focuses on specific social welfare areas in which social workers play major roles in policy and practice. It adopts the philosophy that there are many reasons why social problems occur, and that students need to understand the history, values, and economic, political, and cultural factors that surround these issues and the attempts to solve or address them. Instead of presenting a specific political perspective, the authors encourage readers to think critically about issues in a new way. Each chapter opens with a vignette about a social worker in a specific setting and closes with information about the career opportunities for social workers in the area discussed.

This lively, comprehensive introduction to human behavior in the social environment offers an integrative approach to biopsychosocial case formulations of current and developmental human behavior concerns. The sixth edition builds on prior efforts in promoting integrative assessments by adopting a specific method for completing case formulations that students apply to case studies in the book's developmental chapters. This innovation provides students with a bridge to the core competencies and recommended practice behaviors outlined in the 2015 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) set by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), thus helping them connect foundation knowledge with practice concerns. Guidelines for practice and relevant assessment tools are identified for specific life tasks and for each phase of biopsychosocial development. This edition also offers concrete methods for the translation of developmental research to assessment practices.
