This engaging and comprehensive book explores social work with problematic substance use. Anna Nelson offers social workers new insight on the subject, helping students to understand the issue as it affects service users across a range of social work practice settings. Written from both an anti-discriminatory and evidence-based perspective the text highlights successful responses to the issues surrounding problematic substance use, so that students and social workers can achieve best practice. Considering the effects of problematic substance use across a wide range of service-user groups, the book takes a reflective approach to this widely misunderstood area. Each chapter includes reflective exercises and examples of further reading challenging students to critically reflect on their practice, and increase their awareness in the area.

About the Author:

Anna Nelson is the programme Manager at Matua Raki, the National Addiction Workforce Development Centre in New Zealand and was formerly Senior Lecturer in Social Work at London South Bank University.

Review:

Written in clear, accessible language, this excellent book will be useful for students and practitioners.' - Rachel Fyson, Centre for Social Work, University of Nottingham

'Social workers are often seen to fail substance users despite extensive evidence on the scale and impact of these issues on most of those they work with. Nelson's comprehensive and detailed text is a timely and welcome contribution to an area of practice where there is surprisingly little research and literature. Written by someone with substantial policy knowledge and practice expertise in the field, her approach will help to inspire social workers confidence by drawing on common discourses about substance users and working to embed a partnership approach. Highly recommended for both pre- and post qualified practitioners!' - Trish Hafford-Letchfield, Teaching fellow, Interprofessional Learning, Middlesex University

'This book makes a valuable contribution to the reality that most social workers in New Zealand face the impact of substance abuse on clients and their whanau.'--Aotearoa New Zealand Social Work "Aotearoa New Zealand Social Work "
