Summary

These case studies bring social work practice to life! Social work practitioners share their fascinating real-life experiences in this thoroughly updated new edition, filled with interesting and relevant case studies. The second edition of LeCroy's popular text includes an array of interesting case study material that enlighten students about the day-to-day practice of social work, and includes material that is too often ignored in social work textbooks. Students will see what these professionals actually face every day, as they learn to integrate theory and practice by studying how practitioners have applied general social work principles to particular case situations in the real world. Craig Winston LeCroy has delivered another solid hit with this impressive book that encourages a vicarious journey into social work practice.

  • Case studies encourage students to participate vicariously in social work practice.
  • Each section begins with an overview, and each case study begins with introductory critical thinking questions.
  • Examples of strength-focused approach to community development
  • A new topic area guide on the inside front and back covers helps professors and students target salient cases for course work.
  • A new generalist practice section that broadens appeal and heightens learning. Case studies in this section cover structural supports with a generalist perspective, a strength-focused approach to community development, and an ecological model in generalist practice focusing on life transitions in late adulthood.
  • A case management study of chronic childhood illnesses is also included.
