Synopsis

Social Work with Adults by Martin Davies

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 adult social work field. Focused on four major themes - personalization, mental health, substance use, old age - the book brings together expert commentators to:? Outline the policy background;? Summarize the relevant law;? Describe the key theories;? Highlight the research findings. A wealth of real life case studies reveal, in detail, the challenges that social workers face every day. Through a series of questions, readers are invited to join in the process of 'Making connexions' between different elements of social work knowledge and practice. Edited by the highly respected Martin Davies, this authoritative and illuminating book explores the crucial role of social workers in securing a better future for vulnerable and disadvantaged service users. It is an essential investment for students, educators and practitioners alike.
