9781446208601: Social Work Theories and Methods

The Second Edition of this celebrated book by two of the world′s leading researchers in social work introduces readers to the main theories, theorists and perspectives that contribute to the debate on social work theory and social work methods. It brings together some outstanding international researchers in social work to challenge the reader to critically question how they think about social work.

With three new chapters, the new edition includes a focus on the psychosocial perspective. Each chapter allows the reader to relate the theories and methods discussed to their own personal experiences.

Review:

Praise for the first edition:

′An excellent book that provides a good deal of valuable material to stimulate debate and to alert readers of the need to engage more critically with the wider world in which social work is located.

Professor Keith Popple, Professor of Social Work, London South Bank University

 

This edition has retained the feeling of difference that came with the original and thus makes an alternative contribution to this genre of social work texts. It challenges its social worker readership to step outside familiar frameworks and discourse and to travel with the contributors through wider academic scenery and both recapture old connections and inform some new possibilities. It is a modern text, exploring a vast historical panorama, which successfully fuses theories of explanation with methods of intervention, enabling the reader to think about where today’s theoretically informed social work practice has come from. (Dr. Wulf Livingston 2013-10-03)
