Review:

This book brings together an erudite panoply of excellent chapters from academia and practice that demonstrate the contest is worthy of the struggle. Whatever particular approach we each take to social work practice, or indeed to our understanding of it, it is most likely that we are all committed to ensuring the best possible outcomes for those we are working with, and it is this striving that is situated at the heart of the chapters of this book. The reach of the chapters, from the theoretical to practice with people who have experienced sexual abuse, mental health problems, the traumas associated with being a refugee through to working with spiritual needs offers much to contemporary social work that can be understood, adapted and applied in many countries. A welcome and ethical endeavor! --Professor Jonathan Parker, Bournemouth University, UK

This book is a ground breaking overview of the nature of evidence-based interventions and their application to social work practice. The editors have done an outstanding job in enlisting the expertise of top academics and practitioners from disparate fields. The book has a number of excellent general chapters on evidence-based practice, and also describes specific applications of this approach to different client groups. This publication will be of real interest to busy social workers and will prove invaluable when they are searching for effective and ethical interventions. --Professor Tony Ward, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

This innovative volume promises to advance discerning debates along with the strategic infusion of evidence based practices into social work. This is an inclusionary book as the many sources of evidence promoted include the perspectives of those served. Cutting edge chapters on practice with diverse populations along with a unique section on self-care for social workers makes this book a most valuable 21st century resource. --Professor Katharine Briar-Lawson, State University of New York, USA
