Promotional Information

This book is a great read from cover to cover: extremely well written, with a structure that is logical and a style that is eminently readable. The excellent case studies are so much more appealing and convincing than the usual variants. I will absolutely recommend it to my own students. - Dr Mark Hardy, Lecturer in Social Work, University of York, UK This book's engaging style, the way it is rooted in real dilemmas that social workers face and the way in which it eschews easy answers make it a truly unique text. It should be required reading on social work programmes. - Professor Hugh McLaughlin, Professor of Social Work, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK

"The difference this book makes is in helping workers, not necessarily to know what is right or wrong, but helping them to know what questions to ask in order to ask increasingly better questions. This text provides a framework for the readers to consider their thinking in a balanced manner. ... I will recommend this book to students both at undergraduate and post-graduate levels ... . I enjoyed reading this book and will keep coming back to it." (Hellmuth Weich, The British Journal of Social Work, Vol. 48 (5), July, 2018)
