About this book

Introduction

Edited by three key academics in social work education, this volume draws together specially commissioned pieces by a range of highly respected experts on the knowledge, theories and skills needed for professional social work practice. Carefully structured to reflect the way in which social work courses are generally taught, it offers a definitive handbook for all beginning social work students, giving them not just a flavour of what being a social worker entails but also a critical sense of the debates (practical and theoretical) that it spawns.
