This authoritative new text features a unique approach to teaching generalist social work that incorporates the latest EPAS guidelines and integrates a micro/macro approach to social work instruction. It is the first social work text to fully incorporate, from its initial publication, the new educational mandates (EPAS) of the Council of Social Work Education, requiring all instruction to diverge from "social work practice as usual" and emphasise client diversity, incorporate issues of human rights and social/economic justice, apply research-informed practise and practise-informed research and engage in policy practise. The text is designed to meet the needs of educators required to immediately incorporate the new requirements into their curriculum and features CSWE 2008 EPAS and competencies in each chapter.The book addresses macro practise skills (leadership, administration, policy and advocacy) that are often ignored or underplayed in other texts, as well as social justice and human rights framework. It underscores the commonalities across all levels of practise and examines middle-range theories to help students understand the relationship between theory and practise. Research skills and evidence-based practise are at the foundation of each phase of practise presented in the text. To facilitate in-depth learning, the book includes chapter objectives based on EPAS guidelines, review questions, case studies, experiential exercises and worksheets that students can assemble into a learning portfolio. Web features include PowerPoints, syllabi that incorporate EPAS guidelines and quizzes for each chapter. Comprehensive, broadly inclusive, well organised and incorporating essential social work mandates, this text will more than meet the needs of BSW and MSW courses in generalist social work.
