Recognized as the best text for Introduction to Social Work courses, this third edition of Colby and Dziegielewski's classic text is an engaging introduction to the social work profession, designed for students interested in social work but uncertain of the nature of the profession. The authors are guided by three questions: Who are social workers? What is it that social workers do? How is the social work profession changing? The authors effectively communicate their own passion and enthusiasm for social work while realistically portraying the pressures and obstacles that social workers face. Unique profiles of contemporary social workers provide insight into their lives and the profession. The authors informal tone also prompts student self-reflection about his or her role as a social worker. The new edition has been redesigned around the 2008 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards for social work education and Code of Ethics information, including topics ranging from traditional agency-based practice to less conventional settings such as political and international social work.
