In this book, Terry Bamford challenges social work students and professionals to understand why social work has failed to maintain its position as a driver of social reform. Drawing lessons from the recent history of social work to identify how and why it has lost influence, Bamford looks forward to a new model of practice that places a commitment to social justice at the heart of the profession. The book also contributes to topical debates about social work education and the identity of the profession, encouraging critical thinking about organization models, practice content, and the meaning of professionalism in social work.

About the Author:

Terry Bamford has been active in social work for five decades and is currently chair of the Social Work History Network at King’s College London and of Healthwatch Bexley. He is the author of Managing Social Work, The Future of Social Work, and Commissioning and Purchasing.

Review:

“An exceptionally well-informed book. Bamford’s commitment as a champion for social work and social workers weaves itself through a text which is a pleasure to read. Whilst looking back it is right up to date and points the way forward.” (Ray Jones, Kingston University, UK)

“In this meticulously researched book, infused by his fifty years of experience as practitioner, manager, and policy advocate, Bamford prods, pokes, and throws light on some of social work’s recurring dilemmas.” (June Thoburn, University of East Anglia, UK)

“This book is a treasure trove of wisdom based on the experience of living the history which it recounts.” (British Journal of Social Work)
