Each chapter integrates micro, mezzo, and macro perspectives and critical analysis of each segment. The organization of the book into 35 chapters within four sections makes it ideal for an advanced graduate practice course. Consideration of Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) set forth by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) supports collegial and interdisciplinary connections and transactions. Overarching themes that include health settings, mental health, children and families, diversity, and global and international social work reflect common areas in social work practice. Chapter-opening Learning Objectives and case vignettes illustrate the key issues in a particular chapter. Lists of additional resources throughout provide the opportunity for further exploration. Discussion questions at the close of chapters stimulate readers to engage in professional dialogue.
