Organized around the coherent and cohesive Generalist Intervention Model, this guide to generalist social work practice incorporates the knowledge, skills, and professional values needed to work with individuals and families, as well as the foundation to work with groups, communities, and organizations. Updated with new material on empathy, interdisciplinary collaboration, working with LGBTQ clients and adults with disabilities, and other topics, the book focuses on micro levels of social work practice while also discussing the interrelationship among the micro, mezzo, and macro levels. Part of the Brooks/Cole Empowerment Series, UNDERSTANDING GENERALIST PRACTICE, 8th Edition, clearly identifies content related to the latest Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) with icons throughout the text. Learning objectives, correlated to chapter headings and summaries, guide students' reading and reinforce their understanding.
