The Social Workout Book
Strength-Building Exercises for the Pre-Professional

Second Edition

February 2011 | 168 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The Social Work-Out Book is for the social work or social welfare student fortunate enough to be offered active or collaborative learning right from the start.

Picking up on the topics of the typical mega textbook, Alice Lieberman invites the students to apply critical thinking to the fierce debates and issues which lie underneath the bland interior of their textbook, and debate them with their fellow students. A few of the projects:

- getting together with activists

- what is the poverty line? Discuss

- what can we get out of the technology?

- self-assessment

- what will social work look like in 2025?
