Social Work by Margaret Alston
Book DescriptionThis revised and updated second edition provides a broad overview of the main fields of practice in social work. By examining the areas in which the majority of social workers are employed it introduces student social workers to the 'flavour' of each field. The book also examines the breadth of social work practice in a way that acknowledges its uniquely Australian aspects. The book is clear and easy-to-use, enhanced by new pedagogy and divided into three parts. Part I relates to target groups for social work practice. Part II examines social work practice settings including health care, housing and child protection. Finally, part III documents emerging trends and issues in fields of social work practice such as working with rural Australians, refugees, and the environment.
