This volume applies the service-learning pedagogical approach to the social work curriculum. Its aim is to familiarize social work educators and practitioners with the approach's conceptual and theoretical underpinnings, to illustrate how service learning may be implemented in any of the Council on Social Work Education curriculum content areas, and to suggest methods for assessing the outcomes of these experiences. The book's subject matter is relevant to both baccalaureate and master's level social work education.
