Description - Urban Social Work by Norma Kolko Phillips

Cases are featured throughout this text to illustrate the impact of social welfare policies on the day-to-day lives of people living in the cities and to stress the relationship between policy and practice. This should help students understand how policy defines practice and how social workers can have an impact on policy. The first chapter draws students in by presenting key concepts, such as client determination and the nature of the helping relationship, which are then developed more fully in later chapters. Boxed information throughout text highlights interesting facts and figures. Vignettes illustrate social work practice from an urban social problems perspective. An entire chapter is devoted to diversity as part of the knowledge base of the profession.
