Unavailable. Replaced by new product or edition.


Now available in paperback, Segal, Gerdes, and Steiner's 'workbook within a text' provides a balanced introduction to the social work profession and helps students to understand the role that the profession plays in the social welfare system. The authors' supportive tone and experiential approach inspires in readers a greater level of interest in, and enthusiasm towards, their future careers in social work. The book is designed to encourage both knowledge building and self-exploration - skills that are essential in developing good social work practice.Additional chapter material, including detailed personal stories written by practicing social workers ("From the Field" boxes), and "Point of View" boxes that provide multiple perspectives allow students to consider topics in greater depth and within a critical thinking context. This book provides a foundation of knowledge about social work practice and introduces students to the process of becoming change agents - the breadth of practice; what it means to be a social worker; and whether this field is a good fit.
