Social Working Exercises in Generalist Practice by Phyllis J. Day, Sandra M. Shelly, Harry J. Macy

This supplementary text for social work practice courses provides problem-solving exercises in a workbook format. The generalist approach is emphasized through exercises at all practice levels including interpersonal, groups, organizations, communities, and policy practice. Reviewers of this revision were particularly impressed by the coverage of all levels of practice, including macro practice. The text presents a problem-solving approach, and a focus on the worker/client partnership that uses the strengths/empowerment/social justice perspective.

Social Working provides easy-to-understand definitions and illustrative exercises on issues across the social work curriculum, so it can be used as an integration tool. Small exercises in each chapter help students understand individual processes before they proceed to an entire problem-solving analysis. Some exercises can be completed on an individual basis; others encourage group or class participation. Tear-out pages enable instructors to give written feedback and grade progress. An Instructor's Manual is available to provide guidance in presenting, overseeing, and evaluating the exercise process.
