Description: HUMAN SERVICES IN CONTEMPORARY AMERICA, Seventh Edition, is a thorough examination of the Human Services system in the United States. Providing students a realistic portrayal of the field of human services, the book's multidisciplinary approach presents a complete overview of the helping field, its available programs, and the practical skills workers can employ. The book's unique focus on presenting the history and practice of human services through the lens of a social problems and policy perspective truly sets the book apart from its competitors. Real-life examples in every chapter highlight material on social policy, and useful information on selected careers within the field is discussed along with the necessary training and licensor information. Throughout the text, Burger integrates the theme of understanding how social, economic and political issues affect the human service worker and the people served in human services. In order to highlight the social policy material throughout the text, examples are given in each chapter that highlight personal experiences and other options available to legislators (for example, national health care).
