International Social Work

Four-Volume Set


© 2010 | 1 680 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

This four-volume set covers a broad scope and range of international social work knowledge and research and contains seminal and landmark publications in social work with a particular emphasis on contemporary key publications to compliment earlier classic works. The readings combine empirical with conceptual articles that not only cover significant knowledge and key debates in the field but also show how international social work has developed through research.

Volume I – Welfare Theory and Approaches provides an overview of the development of welfare policy as a backdrop to the evolution of social work.

Volume II - International Social Work Practice explores the development of contemporary social work practice approaches and examines social work's psychosocial foundations in the psychodynamic and functional schools.

Volume III - Social Work Research chronicles the debate on what counts as evidence on which to base social work practice and, therefore, on what kind of research methods best provide valid and reliable evidence.

Volume IV - Future Challenges overviews the enduring and contemporary issues and debates surrounding social development and global social work, generalist versus specialist practice, choice, service user participation, partnerships and social networks where we have seen a move from recipients to citizens to clients to consumers.
