Social Work Practice: Problem Solving and Beyond presents a view of social work that incorporates, not without criticism, problem solving as foundational to traditional practice. While drawing upon international and American content, the text emphasizes Canadian social work experience and developments. Tuula Heinonen and Len Spearman also argue that there are newer approaches that both critique and enrich generalist social work practice: strengths, Aboriginal, structural, and feminist approaches need to be incorporated into generalist social work practice. The goal of Social Work Practice: Problem Solving and Beyond is to expand students' exposure to a broad set of approaches and principles of social work within the generalist context.
