Social Work with Children and Families, Paperback Book

Social Work with Children and Families Paperback


Social workers are constantly making decisions under pressure.

How do policy, law, research and theory influence what they do?

This important book provides the answers with a crystal-clear map of the field of social work with children and families. Focused on four major themes - family support work, child protection, adoption and fostering, and residential child care, and reveals in detail all the challenges that social workers face every day.

Edited by the highly respected Martin Davies, this authoritative and illuminating book argues that the skill of the social worker can have life-enhancing consequences for some of the most vulnerable people in society.

It is an essential investment for students, educators and practitioners alike.
