Multilevel Social Work Practice: A Case Study Manual features over 20 cases, addressing diverse and ethnic clients and groups, so that introductory practitioners can understand the close relationship between their clinical work, which is client-focused, and working for social justice, which most frequently is population-focused. Through the cases, content, and accompanying activities and resources for further research, social workers will develop the ability to fully address the concerns and problems of the people they work with and will be able to act on them simultaneously.
