Edited by Alean Al-Krenawi, John R. Graham, and Nazim Habibov

  • Contributed by experts in Canadian social work, giving students access to the most current and in-depth scholarship in the field.
  • Thematically organized into three parts: theoretical approaches to social work, managing diversity within clinical and community settings, and social work with diverse populations.
  • Stand-alone chapters on disability and aging populations highlight the role of social workers and helping professionals in the lives of these individuals. (Chs. 14, 15)
  • Engaging real-world case studies support chapter discussions and encourage students to apply theory to practice and think critically about the everyday challenges of social workers.
