Description

The first new social work history to be written in over 2 decades; Social Work Practice and Social Welfare Policy in the United States: A History (PDF) presents a history of the field from the perspective of service providers; elites; and recipients. This ebook uniquely chronicles and analyzes the development of social work practice theory on 2 levels: from the top-down; looking at the conference presentations; writings; and training course material developed by leaders of the profession; and from the bottom up; looking at case records for evidence of techniques that were actually applied by social workers in the field.

Additionally; the author takes a careful and critical look at the development of social work methods; setting it apart from existing histories that generally accept the effectiveness of the field’s work. Addressing CSWE EPAS standards at both the MSW and BSW levels; Social Work Practice and Social Welfare Policy in the United States is ideal both as a primary textbook for the history of social welfare/social work classes and a supplementary textbook for an introduction to social welfare/social work or social welfare policy and services classes.
