DESCRIPTION

This best-selling book explores the crucial role of social workers in securing a better future for vulnerable and disadvantaged adult service users. Tacking the problems most common to this branch of social work it focuses on four major themes: personalization; mental health; substance use; and old age. Edited by the highly respected Martin Davies, and with contributions from some of the leading names in the field, Social Work with Adults provides a clear map and guidance to help navigate between the different elements of social work knowledge and practice. Whether a student on an undergraduate degree taking a module on working with adults or a qualified professional wanting to ensure they are proving the very best service they can, this is essential reading. The breadth and depth of coverage makes this text a perfect handbook for students of adult social work.
