Routledge International Handbook of Social Work Education Hardback

Edited by Imogen Taylor, Marion Bogo, Michelle Lefevre, Barbra Teater

Part of the Routledge International Handbooks series


The Routledge International Handbook of Social Work Education provides an authoritative overview of current understanding through coverage of key debates, exploring the state of play in particular social work education fields and reflecting on where the future might be taking us.

The overall aim of the Handbook is to further develop pedagogic research and scholarship for social work education.

Drawing on medical education as an exemplar, the contributions view social work education as a specialism and a field of expertise that counts in the same way as research programmes in more traditional areas of social work practice.

The chapters are concerned with the theory and practice of social work education at all levels; they are accessible, conceptually clear, research based where appropriate, critically reflective and ethically underpinned.

The Handbook is organised into seven sections that reflect the proposed themes and sub-themes covering:Social work education in context: the western driversEmerging and re-emerging social work educationThe scholarship of learning and teachingNew insights into field educationNew directions in learning and teachingFuture challenges in social work educationThis handbook presents a contribution to the process of exchange and dialogue which is essential to global social work education.

It brings together professional knowledge and lived experience, both universal and local, and will be an essential reference for social work educators, researchers, students and professionals.
