SOCIAL WORKER by Margaret Williamson


Email this review


(YA) oincise and competent perspective on and prospectus of the field of social work as a career, this briefly informs on the background of the profession; its outlook (the approach is helping people to help themselves); the types of problems on which social work skills are brought to bear; how to prepare for a career while in college; the groundwork provided by the professional school in case work, group work and community organization; the prospects of a career (salary levels and job security and advancement); the fields of practice. A final nod to the rewards and hurdles of a career in social work is followed by supplementary information in appendices. Good for students considering the field, for defining it to the interested layman.
