Social workers, argue Scales (social work, Baylor U.) and Streeter (social work, U. of Texas at Austin), need to start shifting their perceptions and their attentions from deficiencies in clients and communities to asset building. They present 27 essays integrating the theme of asset building into discussions of rural social work, human behavior and rural environments, practice issues in rural contexts, policy issues affecting rural populations, and using research to evaluate practice in rural settings.
