Social Work: Contexts and Practice is a practical introduction to contemporary issues in social work, providing the context of practice and the broad influences shaping the vision and development of the social work profession. It demonstrates how knowledge contributes to flexible social work responses and identifies the ways in which research findings, theoretical insights and practice wisdom can be integrated within dynamic practice frameworks.

The fourth edition brings together a team of expert authors to guide students through the unique experiences of social work across Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand. It explores how the enduring commitment to social justice and the protection of human rights shapes social work perspectives and practices.
