Zastrow's INTRODUCTION TO SOCIAL WORK AND SOCIAL WELFARE: EMPOWERING PEOPLE, NINTH EDITION looks at today's society with a realistic view of social problems, and gives you a comprehensive overview of the profession. By presenting positive strategies in the context of the core values, ethics, skills and knowledge base of today's professional social worker, Zastrow motivates you to think about new and realistic ways to solve problems and empower clients. Throughout the book, social problems cases, exhibits, and tables help you apply the concepts and compare and contrast the issues.
