About the Author

'This is a major work that provides a clear account of social work practice methods for all user groups, including the latest research evidence. It will be invaluable for any social worker wanting to provide more than vague 'support' to individuals and families in distress.' - Dr Eileen Munro, Social Policy Department, London School of Economics 'You'd expect these authors to be upfront and controversial and you will not be disappointed. A refreshingly committed book which presents the complexity of social work in a lively and accessible manner. A real page-turner, written with conviction, wit and style; this book surveys social work with an intellectually justified optimism.' - Professor Mark Doel, Research Professor of Social Work, Sheffield Hallam University
