Synopsis

International Perspectives on Social Work Global Conditions and Local Practice by Karen Lyons, Kathleen Manion, Mary Carlsen

As social work is fundamentally being altered by the 'Internationalization' of social problems, this book examines the implications for students and practitioners. Arguing that social professionals working locally need an understanding of global mechanisms and cross-cultural issues, it includes both local level and international examples.

Reviews

'[H]ighly recommended for practioners, managers and those in social work education.' - Professional Social Work 'This book is timely as it should help readers in terms of conceptualising these themes and placing them within the context of their experiences. It is highly recommended for practitioners, managers and those in social work education.' - Rohan Burke, Social Work 'The book offers a lot of useful knowledge on how to understand the different aspects of the subjects related to globalisation, and the many examples make is easy to follow.' - Gurid Aga Askeland, Health and Social Care in the Community'
