Rev. ed. of: The social workout book / Alice A. Lieberman. c1998.
"The Social Work-Out Book is for the social work or social welfare student fortunate enough to be offered active or collaborative learning right from the start. Picking up on the topics of the typical mega textbook, Alice Lieberman invites the students to apply critical thinking to the fierce debates and issues which lie underneath the bland interior of their textbook, and debate them with their fellow students. A few of the projects: - getting together with activists - what is the poverty line? Discuss - what can we get out of the technology? - self-assessment - what will social work look like in 2000 or 2025? An instructor's manual is available to lecturers who adopt, or plan to adopt, the book, and who request it on the letterhead of their institution"-- Provided by publisher.
"The book provides students with a hands-on experience in the application of knowledge and skills necessary to be a social worker. It covers many key areas in which social workersmigh work with individuals, families, in policy practice and advocacy"-- Provided by publisher.
