Product Description

Social Work: From Theory to Practice uses an integrated approach to explore a variety of social theories through social work's unique interpretative lense. Systems, psychodynamic and person-centred theories, and cognitive-behavioural, narrative and strengths-based practices are specifically addressed, and students are shown how to apply these in human service settings. These theories are supported by case studies written by experienced practitioners, providing an in-depth exploration of the use of theory in practice. This second edition of Social Work includes new material on mindfulness, and mind, body and spirit social work, as well as enhanced content relating to Indigenous social work. Social Work: From Theory to Practice is an accessible and engaging text that clearly explains the theories that underpin social work in practice.
