People all over the world are confronted by issues such as poverty, a lack of access to quality education, unaffordable and/or inadequate housing, and a lack of needed health and mental services on a daily basis. Due to these issues, there is a need for social workers who have access to relevant and timely scholarly materials in order to meet the needs of those facing these issues. This third edition responds to the changes occurring in society and how they are impacting the education, research, and practice of social work as a whole. Each chapter is short and contains practical information in addition to websites and updated references.
