A Conceptual Approach to Teaching Materials: Illustrations from the Field of Corrections.
This teaching manual, which was developed by a specialist in corrections, contains three teaching units based on a conceptual approach to a field of social work practice. Three variables--social problem, social task, and service system--determine the nature of a field of social work practice. Teaching Unit I, The Problem in Social Functioning, focuses on the social problem variable, while Teaching Unit II, The Role of the Person to be Served, and Teaching Unit III, Treatment Decision-Making, focus on aspects of the service system variable. Each teaching unit contains an introduction detailing the concepts illustrated in that unit and the propositions that relate those concepts, followed by an annotation of selected references and several case studies illustrating the concepts. Appended are a report and summary of the Arrowhead Conference, which brought together 25 social work educators to review provisional versions of the three teaching units. (SB)
