Social work in Northern Ireland : Conflict and change Paperback / softback


Written in an accessible style, this book highlights the distinctive aspects of social work policy and practice in Northern Ireland.

It covers the historical development of social work, explores the challenges that have arisen from delivering services both during and post conflict and addresses the new imperatives created after the devolution settlement.

Exploring many major themes - including social exclusion, devolution and working across borders - the book demonstrates how Northern Ireland's experience can provide lessons for national and international theory and practice.
