This immensely practical and comprehensive book covers theoretical as well as practical aspects of social casework. Though apparently it appears to be theoretical in nature, one can get the practical input of it in the chapters on processes. At different intervals, examples have been given to explain the concepts and their usage in practice. Knowledge drawn from the ancient Indian scriptures adds to the utility of the book. Besides, various principles and techniques of social casework have also been discussed in detail.
Anyone interested in learning and enriching his casework practice will benefit from this book. It is hoped that it will fill the gap of a textbook as well as a casebook in the area of social work education.
