Contributor: David Kondrat This new edition of Barbra Teater s already valued text offers an accessible route into understanding social work theory. It supports learning to apply theories in practice as well as critical reflection on theory. The chapters on group work and community work add very useful new dimensions to the book, which will be appreciated by readers looking to understand social work theory across a wide range of service user groups and different settings. This is an excellent resource for students, also providing a knowledge base to accompany and support them into practice. Penelope Welbourne, Associate Professor of Social Work, Plymouth University, UK The first edition of this book has been on my reading lists for undergraduate and post graduate students since its publication and has been appreciated as a plainly written, well organized, and comprehensive introductory source. The strengths of this text lie in the detailed and plausible case examples, bulleted strengths and limitations, and consistent references to contemporary and seminal research. I can highly recommend the second edition which includes updated sources and case material, including a focus on dementia, and the addition of chapters on Community Work and Groupwork, which are particularly pertinent to social work in this age of austerity and demographic change.
