Casework in Context: A Basis for Practice discusses the methodologies and techniques utilized in social case studies. The book also covers the specific applications of caseworks, along with some issues that can be encountered while in the practice. The text first details the social work and society, as well as the development of social work conceptualization. Next, the book tackles topics related to interviewing, such as client needs and worker response; treatment goals, methods, and plans; and case work process. The next part of the text deals with the differential uses of casework. The last part covers topics about the activities of a social worker outside an interview. The book will be of great use to researchers and practitioners in disciplines that involve research studies in a social setting, such as psychology, sociology, and anthropology.
