Christianity and Social Work is organized around four themes: 1. Christian Roots of the Social Work Profession; 2. Christians Called to Social Work: Scriptural Basis, Worldviews and Ethics; 3. Human Behavior and Spiritual Development in a Diverse World; 4. Christians in Social Work Practice: Contemporary Issues. Chapters address a breadth of curriculum areas such as social welfare history, human behavior and the social environment, social policy, and practice at micro, mezzo, and macro levels. Containing 19 chapters and more than 400 pages, this revised edition of CSW includes six new chapters and six extensively-revised chapters in response to requests by readers of previous editions, including chapters on working with clients from the LGBT community, evidence-based practice (EBP), congregational social work, military social work, human trafficking, and spiritual assessment... In organizing this 5th edition, NACSW has carefully considered the Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) from the Council on Social Work Education. It is important for schools of social work to show how they prepare students to demonstrate specific competencies in social work practice. To help with this integration CSW includes Appendices with charts that guide readers toward potential connections. These tools will be a helpful guide for both instructors and students"--

Decision cases for advanced social work practice : thinking like a social worker by Terry A Wolfer( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Designed for MSW-level social work students, this collection of cases encourages readers to think like practicing professionals. The cases depict actual situations across a variety of practice settings--individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities. Sure to stimulate in-depth class discussions, these detailed, open-ended cases urge students to decide on the central problem and recommend a course of action. The resulting case analyses and class discussions help students develop important problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, internalize social work values and ethics, and apply theory to practice. Through the "decision case" approach, students adopt attitudes and skills that are considered essential for effective social work practice, yet difficult to teach in the traditional curriculum. As they discuss their perspectives on these cases, students learn to articulate and defend their positions, to listen more effectively, and to develop skills in, and appreciation for, collaborative problem-solving."--Publisher's website
Social environments and human behavior : contexts for practice with groups, organizations, communities and social movements by T. Laine Scales( Book )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Social Environments and Human Behavior focuses on the influence and interaction of groups, communities, organizations, and social movements in the lives of all individuals. The text brings together theoretical information with practice application, highlighting the historical foundations of social work in larger settings, and providing students the opportunity to make broader curricular connections. Each unit contains an overview of theoretical materials on groups, organizations, and communities followed by three selected readings: the first is a classic article by one of the pioneers of the field, the second reading is a literary or artistic selection that allows students to make personal and creative connections, and the third is a comprehensive decision case that gives readers an opportunity to apply the theoretical knowledge and illustrates the relationship between HBSE, practice, policy and research. This approach combines the best features of both a textbook and a reader, appealing to multiple learning styles and providing instructors maximum flexibility."--

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work will present a complete history of women's education in a Southern Baptist context by examining the Women's Missionary Union Training School (commonly referred to as the Carver School). Established in 1907, the school provided recognition that the denomination needed educated, female leadership but also sought to limit this leadership to missionary work and away from pastoral ministry and other forms of leadership in the church. The history of the school reflects the changing nature of the denomination as a whole, embodying broad social concern at certain times, but the school became increasingly under fire as the Southern Baptist takeover loomed in the early nineties"--
