Sociology and Social Work Summary

Sociology and Social Work by Jo Cunningham

Sociological perspectives and their application to social work are an inherent part of the QAA benchmark statements in the social work degree. In addition, graduates must understand how sociological perspectives can be used to dissect societal and structural influences on human behaviour at individual, group and community levels. This title answers the need for a clear, core text which integrates the areas of sociology and social work. Carefully constructed to be accessible to beginners in the discipline, it links sociological concepts, debates and theories to subject benchmarks, social work occupational standards and codes of practice.
