Description

Social Work Practicum, 5/e, offers a unique integrative format designed to help students develop social work competencies by applying their academic learning  to practicum experiences. 

 

It covers a variety of topic areas and leads students through guided experiences and workbook questions, helping them  gain a professional identity, integrate theory with practice, and acquire the core competencies needed for social work practice. 

 

This text is part of the Connecting Core Competencies Series, designed to guide students in becoming skilled at the Council on Social Work's core competencies. Each chapter reflects and integrates the latest CSWE competency standards (EPAS). End-of-chapter assessment reinforces this integration, and MySocialWorkLab provides activites and supports the mastery of CSWE's core competencies through activities, tests,  an extensive library of videos and cases, and much more.
