supplies social care and social work students, academics and practitioners in the UK with hand reference resources, [for] which their colleagues in many other countries can only envy them * European Journal of Social Work (No. 18), Jerzy Szmagalski *
This has to be the best social work and social care dictionary I have come across * Professional Social Work *
This dictionary features 1,500-plus terms and concepts related to the social work field. In addition to social work, it includes definitions for related issues in psychology, sociology, and social policy... This dictionary should be beneficial to those new to the discipline. It provides enough detail to help familiarize readers with many of the universal theories and principles associated with social work. * S. L. Pham, for CHOICE, July 2013 *
This very comprehensive work ... covers all the relevant UK legislation ... The intended target readership could include a wider professional range beyond social work including health and education, especially important as services move towards models of integration ... This dictionary should impress upon new entrants to the social care and social work professions that the interfaces with sociopolitical processes cannot be ignored. * Isabel Martin, Journal of Social Work, 14, 5, 543 *
