This engaging and accessible introduction to social work encourages reflective learning in preparation for practice. Direct linking of key concepts to professional standards ensures that students are able to build up an understanding through context and reflective points, and with an emphasis on diversity, ideology, and preparing for practice, students will benefit from both practical and theoretical guidance.  Sections are designed to work as both integrated and standalone resources and the flexible methodology will support a range of courses and learning techniques.

Overall, if students were to purchase one book as a context to social work practice, I would recommend this one. In addition to key contemporary UK practice issues, it considers broader global issues. I feel this is an excellent book that needs to feature on the reading lists of a range of modules including any post qualifying modules. It encourages reflexivity and the application of knowledge and concepts. – Eve Rees, Senior Lecturer/Practice Learning Co-ordinator, Cardiff Metropolitan University
This is a comprehensive overview of social work today, set within a plethora of contexts: historic, local and global. The ideal guide for students who are engaged in making the connections between their own experiences and the "bigger picture", this is an accessible and engaging text containing many interactive features to engage the reader. – Karen Hillison, Practice Learning Co-ordinator, University of Hull
