Book Description:

This guide to social work theory and practice offers a comprehensive introduction to the field, with contributions from leading experts that illuminate the focus and purpose of social work.This third edition provides up-dated material in all chapters. Some have been completely re-written. The Companion now includes new sections on the misuse of drugs and alcohol, population movement and immigration, assessment, intervention and review and social work ethics.The book's reader-friendly presentation makes it particularly attractive to those new to the subject, with concise and accessible chapters edited within a consistent framework across the book as a whole. For the more experienced reader, it represents an essential reference text providing evidence-based summaries of the key issues and debates in social work today.One student commented in an Amazon review: "This book covers a lot of the first year modules and gives a good basis from which to carry further research into a topic, allowing a clear starting point for any one who does not want to get too bogged down when starting an essay. It is easy to use and the index works well."
