This masterly text is a classic in its field and will be a reliable companion throughout the course of your studies and your career as a social work practitioner.

In this substantially reworked and updated fourth edition of his best-selling text, Malcolm Payne presents clear and concise evaluations of the pros and cons of major theories that inform social work practice, and comparisons between them. Modern Social Work Theory is now more accessible and comprehensive than ever, offering:

· the most complete coverage of social work theory, from classic perspectives to the very latest ideas, including a new chapter dedicated to strengths, narrative and solutions approaches
· a host of brand new case examples showing how theories can be applied to everyday practice
· new analysis of the ethical dimensions of different social work theories and what common values they share
· 'Pause and Reflect' questions to encourage you to draw on your own experience and develop your thinking
· updated 'Example text' sections which summarise the most current thinking and help bridge the gap between introductions to each theory and more specialist writing.

Review:

This text is a tour de force! The new edition is impressive in its scope and consistent application of a social construction perspective. The increased use of diagrams and case illustrations will help students to access some important and complicated aspects of theory.' – Joan Orme, University of Glasgow, UK

'A wonderful resource for students, practitioners, and academics. The new edition is comprehensive and has been brought right up to date, providing clear explanations of the breadth of theories social work has engaged with over time.' – Sarah Wendt, UNISA, Australia

'A really thoroughly revised and updated edition of what is probably the best known and certainly the longest-running UK text on social work theory.' – Chris Beckett, University of East Anglia, UK

'I regard Payne's Modern Social Work Theory as a classic and the best of its type. It not only covers theories well for new social workers but is an excellent refresher for more seasoned academics.' – Jan Fook, Kingston University, UK
