Social Work Futures: Crossing Boundaries, Transforming Practice
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Social Work Futures: Crossing Boundaries, Transforming Practice is the third and final volume in the trilogy begun by Social Work: Themes, Issues and Critical Debates and Critical Practice in Social Work. Edited by the same highly regarded team and bringing together a mix of established scholars and newer voices, the book follows a similar three-part structure to its companions but is carefully designed to complement rather than overlap with these. Its distinctive focus is on the development of practice through deepened understanding of social work processes, organizational settings and the evidence base for practice and multiprofessional working. The text is relevant across the entire undergraduate degree in social work and pitched accordingly, but its unique chapters focused on researching social work will be particularly useful to students on placement, doing dissertation work or engaged in continuing professional development.
