This book builds on and substantially extends the authors' earlier work Supporting Families (1999). It is written for both the student of social and community work and the practising social and community worker.
All aspects of social and community work are covered and there is a strong emphasis upon context, the cornerstone of effective social and community work practice. The book covers the key areas of reflective practice, policy, management and leadership, approaches to support, and diversity. Each chapter includes questions that can be used as teaching aids or reflection prompters in practice, and a completely new chapter provides a detailed examination of current international strengths-based thinking.
