'Theoretical frameworks are made accessible by the clear and conversational style of Dr Thompson. The inclusion of practice vignettes facilitate the integration of complex theory with 'real-life' situations encountered in social work practice. Dr Thompson goes beyond traditional theorising and looks to the deeper personal, social and cultural issues facing workers and clients. This will be a highly recommended text for students and practitioners.'
- Dr Jan Pascal, School of Social Work and Social Policy, La Trobe University, Bendigo, Victoria, Australia.
Neil Thompson explores the relationship between social work theory and practice in order to promote reflective practice, higher level thinking and evaluation of different theoretical positions
