Generalist Social Work Practice provides students with the foundational skills and knowledge needed to serve clients across micro, mezzo and macro areas of practice. Author Janice Gasker engages students through evidence-based pedagogy that includes case studies, self-reflection opportunities, sample dialog, application and reinforcement of concepts, and an abundance of critical thinking sections, including profession practice standards such as the 2018 NASW Code of Ethics and 2022 EPAS. Updates to the Second Edition include an emphasis on Critical Race Theory, greater coverage of issues related to race and intersectionality, and a new section on institutional racism in social work. The new edition further includes an infusion of concepts related to ADEI and the addition of the PREPARE and IMAGINE models.

A great textbook! It has the depth for a graduate generalist course as well as the practicalities for undergraduate students. The addition of ADEI material is right on the money.
