The new edition includes a focus on the psychosocial perspective, with three new chapters on:
- Cognitive behavioural approaches
- Attachment theory and psychoanalytic social work
- Ecological approaches
Each chapter allows the reader to relate the theories and methods discussed to their own personal experiences. This reader friendly book includes student questions, glossaries and recommended reading so that students and practitioners can reappraise and expand the knowledge they have learned.
This book will be valuable for undergraduate and postgraduate students taking courses in social work theory and research methods, social work interventions and perspectives as well as post qualifying students and researchers in social work.
