"International Social Work: Issues, Strategies, and Programs draws together the practice wisdom emerging within the broad scope of international social work practice. Using an integrated perspectives approach, which incorporates global, human rights, ecological, and social development perspectives, authors David Cox and Manohar Pawar prepare readers to actively respond to modern global challenges that are critical to the well-being of people, communities, nations, and ultimately all of us." "This book is designed to teach international social work practice to students and practitioners at all levels. International Social Work is an ideal text for undergraduate and graduate courses in Social Work and Development Studies, as well as an excellent resource for social workers, human services professionals, and development practitioners."--Jacket.
