Promotional Information

This book is a classic that has stood the test of time. It has the edge over the competition in terms of reputation, the range of areas covered in a holistic way and the high quality level of discussion and analysis.' - Professor Brian Littlechild, Associate Head of School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work, University of Hertfordshire, UK and Chair of BASW Editorial Advisory Board 'I will happily recommend the text to all social work students across the qualifying period of their studies. It is essential introductory reading, because:it is selectively informative, yet comprehensive, and covers the core elements of what students need to engage with as they embark on their studies leading to the social work qualification; it is written in language that is student friendly and yet academic, so that students will access and engage with, and develop better understanding of social work concepts that are in current use; it features case studies, reflective exercises, chapter introductions and overviews, and research prompts -all of which will further facilitate better understanding and engagement with social work practice for the novice social work student, whatever their learning approach/needs might be; it enables students to make the links 'from theory to practice' a less daunting, and enjoyable experience. I have confidence in the author's established credibility and leadership in contributing to social work education.' - Marie Joseph, Independent Academic in Social Work and Former Senior Lecturer at University of East London, UK Reviews of previous edition '[A] key text for social work students and a useful resource for practitioners and lecturers.' - British Journal of Social Work 'The book has always been a perfect jumping off point for students.' - Social Work Practice 'Fantastic book...Easy book to read, good examples and easy to apply in practice.' - Von Kelso, Practice Learning Assessor and Lecturer, Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences, University of Hull, UK 'This is an excellent core text for student social workers...[it]forms the basis by which students have to underpin their fieldwork practice.' - Marguerita McGovern, Department of Political Science & Sociology, National University of Ireland
