Reflecting the latest practices, accreditation requirements, and developments from the field, the eighth edition of bestselling SOCIAL WORK AND SOCIAL WELFARE gives readers a broad understanding about the social work profession and the role it plays in the social welfare system. Part of the Brooks/Cole Empowerment Series, the text is completely up to date and thoroughly integrates the core competencies and recommended practice behaviors outlined in the current Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) set by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). With its signature systems/ecological approach to understanding social welfare, the book focuses on specific social welfare areas in which social workers play major roles in policy and practice. It adopts the philosophy that there are many reasons why social problems occur, and that students need to understand the history, values, and economic, political, and cultural factors that surround these issues and the attempts to solve or address them. Instead of presenting a specific political perspective, the authors encourage readers to think critically about issues in a new way. Each chapter opens with a vignette about a social worker in a specific setting and closes with information about the career opportunities for social workers in the area discussed.

Link goes beyond U.S. borders to examine U.S. government policies—including child welfare, social services, health care, and criminal justice—within a global context. Guided by the belief that forces from the global market and globalization affect all social workers in their practice, the book addresses a wide range of relevant topics, including the refugee journey, the impact of new technologies, war trauma, global policy instruments, and restorative justice.

Zur Soziologie abweichenden Verhaltens

Author: Howard S. Becker

Publisher: Springer-Verlag

ISBN: 3658012544

Category: Social Science

Page: 197

View: 2202

​ „Der Mensch mit abweichendem Verhalten ist ein Mensch, auf den diese Bezeichnung erfolgreich angewandt worden ist; abweichendes Verhalten ist Verhalten, das Menschen als solches bezeichnen“: Es ist einer der klassischen Sätze der Devianzsoziologie in einem der Klassiker des Feldes. Howard S. Becker betont fernab von alten und simplistischen Fragen danach, „warum Menschen Regeln brechen“, welche Situationen und welche Prozesse dazu führen, dass Menschen in Positionen geraten, in denen sie als „Regelbrecher“ betitelt werden, wie sie mit diesen Positionen umgehen und sich auch gegen diese wehren. „Außenseiter“ erschien erstmals 1963 in New York und wurde 1981 bei S. Fischer in deutscher Übersetzung publiziert. Seit den frühen neunziger Jahren vergriffen, liegt hier nun eine von Michael Dellwing überarbeitete und herausgegebene Version vor.

Category: Social Science

View: 4963

Urban Life and Society is a comprehensive and readable overview of the entire field of urban sociology. It provides a very well balanced introduction to all of the major approaches and perspectives. The book pays homage to the traditional “classic” works in the field, while also focusing on some of the most recent theoretical and empirical work available. Updated materials, from the perspective of the NEW URBAN SOCIOLOGY, or THE POLITICAL ECOMOMY APPROACH, as it is increasingly coming to be called, are most directly represented in the two separate chapters on urban economic institutions and political institutions, but also material on the new urban sociology approach is integrated into the most relevant sections. A historical perspective provides the reader with a clear picture of the process of urbanization process—past, present, and future: from the first cities to the emergence of the early Egyptian, Greek, Roman civilizations; continuing through urban developments throughout the feudal, medieval, and renaissance periods of European urbanization. For anyone interested in urban sociology.

Deutschland, Lutherland

Warum uns die Reformation bis heute prägt

Author: Christine Eichel

Publisher: Karl Blessing Verlag

ISBN: 3641156505

Category: Social Science

Page: 256

View: 1632

Es ist viel mehr Luther in uns, als wir ahnen. Das Jahr 1517 markiert eine historische Zäsur, die für Deutschland identitätsstiftende Bedeutung hat. Denn Luthers 95 Thesen über den Ablasshandel waren ein Signal, das neben der religiösen Erneuerungsbewegung einen tiefgreifenden Mentalitätswandel einleitete. Im Zuge der Reformation entstand eine protestantische Kultur, die bis heute starken Einfluss auf unsere Ideen von Staat, Wirtschaft, Familie, Bildung und der gesellschaftlichen Rolle der Frau hat. Ausgehend von Alltagserfahrungen, die sie in pointierten Anekdoten schildert, spürt Christine Eichel dem reformatorischen Denken und Handeln in der deutschen Gegenwart nach: in der auf Bescheidenheit bedachten Selbstinszenierung des Staates, im protestantischen Arbeitsethos, in typisch deutschen Wertedebatten, in der Verklärung der Familie als Ort privater Bildung oder im sozialstaatlichen Netz evangelisch geprägter nordeuropäischer Länder. Doch Christine Eichel zeigt auch die Schattenseiten der Reformation: von Luthers Antisemitismus und seinem Obrigkeitsdenken bis hin zum Verlust von Spiritualität. Ein leicht verständliches, oft verblüffendes und mit großer Genauigkeit recherchiertes Buch für alle, die wissen wollen, was Luther und die Reformation uns heute angehen.
