About the Author

Beth R. Crisp is a Professor in the School of Health and Social Development at Deakin University, Australia where she is the discipline leader for social work.


"In conclusion, the book contains a wealth of information about an important area of social work and social welfare provision that is to date under researched and, perhaps, often little understood. As such, it can be of value to all involved in social work, whether as qualifying students, practitioners or those in management and policy formulationand it may open the door to further research into the wealth of settings and agencies within which social work is practised." - Nigel Elliott, Independent Social Worker, Journal of Social Work Practice

'This is a valuable book that acknowledges the importance of faith-based organisations and social work. It is the culmination of a major research project in which social workers in Australia and Scotland were interviewed. Throughout the text the "voices" of these social workers come through as they reflect on themselves and their practice in such agencies. Intertwined with this is a comprehensive analysis of the literature.' - Peter Camilleri School of Health and Society, University of Wollongong, Australian Social Work
