Social Work in Context Summary

Social Work in Context: Theory and Concepts by Lester Parrott

This book examines key sociological theories that have contributed to the understanding of the nature of social work, its organisation and delivery. It provides key sociological concepts and theories to help student social workers better understand the nature of their work and the social and political context within which they will be working. Taking a practical approach to social work, and focusing on the application of theory, the book also provides insightful discussions to important thinkers such as Douglas, Beck and Furedi, and how their ideas have direct relevance for understanding the risk averse nature of social work.

Social Work in Context Reviews

This is a unique text, providing students with an insight into the political landscape within which social work is practice. An essential read for the critical social worker and the critical social work student!
-- Lisa Revell
