'This is the first book on Evidence-based Practice to address issues with an international scope for those social work researchers, practitioners and educators who use the English language in their work. As such, it is truly ground breaking, and is certain to affect the practice and teaching of social workers around the world.' - Professor Joel Fischer, University of Hawai'i, USA 'Important, challenging, and provocative contribution to the debate on evidence-based social work... Critical stances offered by the authors will help proponents of EBSWP improve the approach. An actor network model to explore dimensions of EBSWP makes it exciting. Reading this book is a must.' - Dr Haluk Soydan, University of Southern California, USA 'This authoritative and timely book will be appreciated greatly by all students, teaching staff and practitioners who are concerned about evidence-based practice in social work.' - Professor Viviene E. Cree, University of Edinburgh, UK 'This new volume is a very useful contribution to the ongoing disciplinary-wide dialog of this remarkable new perspective on how to help practitioners make important decisions related to assessment and intervention.' - Professor Bruce A. Thyer, Florida State University, USA
