Review

'This is a much welcome book providing an engaging, informative and accessible introduction to human growth and development for social workers...(It) will undoubtedly be invaluable reading for social work students, a learning companion during social work training and an interesting and enjoyable read for those already in practice.' - Gabriela Misca, Keele University, UK

'The book skilfully instructs and interacts with the reader. It presents information in a way that will appeal to learners at different stages offering both introductory and in-depth levels of knowledge. These unique features make this book an indispensable text for student social workers in learning and practice environments.' - Nora Duckett, London Metropolitan University,UK

'John Sudbery has provided a human growth and development textbook full of interest. Written specifically for social work, readers will be able to engage with it at various levels - from the personal impact of narratives, case studies and reflective questions, to the more in depth academic content in outlines of key theoretical issues.' - Ruben Martin, University of Kent, UK

'The author’s interest in psychosocial perspectives and his rich experience as practitioner, manager and academic social worker/researcher ensure the quality and rigor of this text.' - Clare Parkinson, Senior Lecturer, University of East London, UK

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By A. Pritchard on 14 Sep 2010
Format: Paperback
This book iS an easy read and provides a good overview/introduction to human development theories. I am completing a Masters in Social Work and whilst it was not comprehensive enough to quote from in essays it is a must have for the shelf as it is easy to pick up and remind yourself of the theories and unlike other Social Work texts is not updated with legislation every year!

A definite must have for all social work students in my opinion!
