Transforming Social Work Practice Series

TSWP Landing page banner

Written by subject experts, the Transforming Social Work Practice series are essential guides that introduce key theories and approaches to students.

Since launching in 2003, Transforming Social Work Practice has become the market-leading series for social work students. Each book is:

  • Affordable
  • Written to the Professional Capabilities Framework
  • Mapped to the Social Work curriculum
  • Practical with clear links between theory and practice

These books use activities and case studies to build critical thinking and reflection skills and will help social work students to develop good practice through learning.


“I learnt to critically reflect on social work in my student days using the Transforming Social Work Practice introductory books. Carefully harvested from that series, this compendium of interactive introductory texts is clearly written and relevant, and packed with activities and case studies. This readable book is equally suited to classroom use or self-study. I predict students will constantly dip into it for assignments, and it will become as lovingly dog-eared as those early individual volumes of mine did.”
- Magnus Frampton, Lecturer in Social Work, University of Vechta, Germany
