Welcome to the Companion Website

This site is intended to enhance your use of Transformative Social Work Practice by Erik Schott and Eugenia L. Weiss. Please note that all the materials on this site are especially geared toward maximizing your understanding of the material.  

Transformative Social Work Practice presents an innovative and integrative approach towards critically reflective practice with an interweaving of micro, mezzo, and macro applications to real world demands. The authors explore issues commonly addressed by social workers, including health, mental health, addictions, schools, and family and community violence, while challenging assumptions and promoting ethically-driven, evidence-based practice perspectives to advocate for social justice and reduce disparities. The book is about redefining social work practice to meet the current and complex needs of diverse and vulnerable individuals, families, and communities in order to enhance their strengths in an era of unprecedented technological growth, globalization, and change.
