The approach to social work practice presented in this text acknowledges our interdependence and celebrates the resources that collaboration creates. It reflects a broad-based view of human functioning and explores processes for activating resources in people and their environments. Moreover, it specifically focuses on the nature of the helping relationship itself as a resource for both workers and client systems. Collaboration is the heart of this empowering approach. We believe in the creative synergy of collaborative processes. It’s how we wrote this book.
