New directions in social work practice

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This book investigates the main influences shaping social work practice now and in the future. Aimed at second and third year undergraduates and post-graduates, it looks at current developments such as the rise of the service user movement and the influence of European perspectives. In addition, it draws on national policy developments including Every Child Matters, Valuing People and Common Assessment frameworks. It also develops themes around inter-professional/multi-agency work, common learning and enhancing the voluntary sector’s role in service delivery. Supported by activities and case studies, it is an excellent follow-on to the Learning Matters title, "What is Social Work?".
