The Forest and the Trees: Neighborhood-Based Clinical Social Work


ABSTRACT

Social work education gives lip service to systems-based, integrative approaches to practice, yet the profession tends to create unnecessary polarities between clinical practice and social work’s original commitment to vulnerable populations, person-in-environment, and social change. The author describes a model of community-based family services that bridges this gap.
