This is an absolute for any student on MA social work course - it provides policy and legal frameworks as well as critical debate.
A comprehensive guide to the international social work that includes a variety of useful case examples.
It was the most appropriate textbook I was able to find for teaching an undergraduate course I developed on International Human Services at Elon University. I'll be using it again in fall 2015 because my students found it useful.
Broad ranging text which provides a very useful resouce on key issues and stratagems for students at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
Currently using as a supplement for my SW222/policy course.
I would highly recommend this book to any practitioner and academic who is interested in the different ways that social work is practised world wide, as the authors have provided an extensive and informative perspective on social work and the political climates that operate in different parts of the worlds.
A very good book for students considering international work, also for MA students moving into other sectors.
This book is essential reading for our final year students during their Social Work and Globalisation module.
This title is also available on SAGE Knowledge, the ultimate social sciences online library. If your library doesn’t have access, ask your librarian to start a trial.
