Designed for the generalist practice course, this book uses students' own experiences rather than abstract discussion to build competency and professional identity. Full of rich case examples and exercises, the book lets students visualize and carry out skills in an applied, experimental way. It breaks down each practice skill into subcomponents, allowing students to consciously build up their capabilities as part of a lifelong learning process. Social work students will benefit from this presentation of the core knowledge, techniques, and values essential to the effective practice of social work.
