'The book has always been a perfect jumping off point for students...Social Work Practice maintains its bestseller status with this edition.' - Rachel Wooler, Community Care This third edition of Veronica Coulshed's classic text retains the strengths of the original text but has been meticulously revised to reflect recent changes in social work. Including new material on empowering practice, user involvement, community work and community social work, Joan Orme has also increased the book's relevance for workers in the criminal justice service.
