Biology's Challenge to Social Work: Embodying the Person-in-Environment Perspective.
Saleebey, Dennis
Social Work, v37 n2 p112-18 Mar 1992
Notes that, although social work credits itself for using biopsychosocial perspective, "bio" is virtually absent from profession's knowing and doing. Review of areas in which biological knowledge is growing ("biology of hope"--psychoneuroimmunology, for example--and the new biomedical approach to mental health) yields some ideas about how theory and practice in social work can be "embodied."
