Summary

This book provides students and practitioners with a valuable collection of recipes that serve as metaphors to illuminate the key concepts of the social work profession and social work education. The author cleverly explores complex ideas in a manner that can be readily applied to actual work in the profession. The metaphors provide common reference points that are then used to explain the concepts in a fun and humorous manner.

  • The book shows how an ecological perspective can be used effectively in social work practice.
  • The book's approach helps students learn to think creatively and personally about social work concepts.
  • Critical thinking prompts at the end of each chapter invite readers to build on concepts by creating their own metaphors.
