About this book


Social Work and Community Care makes a powerful case for the effective involvement of social work skills, knowledge and values as part of the effective development of policy and multi-professional practice in community care. Malcolm Payne shows how ideas of community and community care are entwined with the development of social work and the social services. Each stage of the community care process is examined in turn to show how social work liaison and interpersonal skills are needed in creating and implementing care packages effectively.
