It provides a comprehensive and in-depth 'one-stop' for students, academics and practitioners seeking the most thoughtful contemporary insights to the complexities of modern social work practice. Look no further.??Gary Clapton, University of Edinburgh ?This book continues to be an important source of reference both for the discipline and the profession of social work. In its revised form, the book manages to keep pace with the rapid changes that are taking place in social work without sacrificing breadth or depth.
