This book is based on actual cases carried by members in a course for public health workers given at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. It identifies and discusses what is meant by casework, the idea of movement, empathy, avoiding self-involvement, not disarming the client, purposiveness in interviewing, and what it means to be a caseworker.
