An Introduction to Social Work Theory

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Social workers need to recognize the critical role that theory plays both in the way they make sense of what is going on and in the way they order their work. Such recognition clarifies practice for both the worker and the client. This classic text provides a framework to help social workers develop an understanding of the theories which inescapably underpin their thoughts and actions. The result is a stimulating guide to social work theory which is proven to help social workers both to understand their practices and to practise in a disciplined and imaginative way.
