NEW DIRECTIONS IN SOCIAL WORK

In a book of particular interest for the professional social worker and for those involved in community affairs, the present position and the immediate advancement of social work is considered. Contributors discuss the guiding motives and responsibilities of social work; the part of government and volunteer agencies in the field; the relations of international practices, of social work to reform; the state of medical care and finance; the education, knowledge and research in the field to date. There is an emphasis on expansion of function to positive rather than ameliorative work alone; questions are raised, some answered. Dedicated to Philip Klein, it is a working commemoration to his contribution to the field.
