Best Practice in Social Work by Harry Ferguson
Book DescriptionWhat is social work at its best? Social work has laboured too long under a 'deficit' model that focuses on failings and problems of practice. This ambitious book seeks to redress the balance, with its emphasis on best practice, strengths and collaborative partnership. Each chapter provides a detailed account of practice, offering a series of vivid windows into social work at its best, framed by concepts and critical theory. Undergraduate and post-qualifying social work students alike will benefit from the insights offered by this rich, wide-ranging and multi-facetted text.
