CAIRO BOOKS's Description
After graduating, students in social work are faced with the daunting and
stressful decision of choosing their specialty from the many that are available
to them. JessicaRosenberg has designed this guidebook to make this process
easier, providing students with real world and practical information about what
it is really like to work as a social worker. Each chapter covers a different
practice setting, such as child welfare, gerontology, and addictions, and
follows the same format.
The Field Overview and Forecast describes the social worker’s role, scope of
services, and emerging issues and employment trends. The Critical Issues
section consists of an interview with an established professional in his or her
chosen field, offering a look into their personal journeys as they progressed
through their careers. A vignette written by a practitioner in their area of
specialty makes-up the First Person Narrative , providing the reader with a
look at the joys and challenges of working in that particular field. Each
chapter then concludes with helpful resources to learn more, such as books and
websites, as well as information about specialty credentials and educational
programs and centres. Those entering the social work field will find this an
indispensible guide as they select their specialty and begin their career.
