This new ADVANTAGE SERIES version of Segal, Gerdes and Steiner's SOCIAL WORK: AN INTRODUCTION TO THE PROFESSION, 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. At the same time, the authors' supportive tone 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 boxes that provide more detail and differing points of view, allow students to consider topics in greater depth. As part of the ADVANTAGE SERIES, this new version will offer all the quality content you've come to expect from the Segal/Gerdes/Steiner author team in a paperback format that will be sold to your students at a significantly lower price.
