Additional Book Details
The 2nd Edition of So You Want to Be a Social Worker: Reflections for the Christian Student was originally written by Alan Keith-Lucas, and now updated and extensively revised by Leslie Gregory and Sandra Bauer.
Being a Christian and becoming a social worker are about bringing your whole self to the helping process. So You Want to Be a Social Worker attempts to address key questions for embarking on this journey such as: How can I in corporate faith into my social work practice? Can I share my faith with a client? How do I work competently with a client whose choices do not align with my Christian faith and values? How do I hold onto hope when facing obstacles?
Beginning answers to these questions are explored in chapters that include insights from ones faith, how to approach suffering, and developing hope and resilience. These reflections are written for beginning social work students, while providing insights for experienced practitioners as well. It is a lifelong journey to explore these questions and the invaluable ways in which the interaction of Christian faith and social work shapes and contributes to practice.
Especially useful in the classroom or social work trainings, the 2nd edition of So You Want to Be a Social Worker includes most of the chapters from the original edition, though with updated language, case examples and references:
