Crisis in Care?: Challenges to Social Work

by

Crisis in Care?: Challenges to Social Work Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since a high point of professional optimism in the late 1960s, social work practice has become entangled in a crisis of confidence and of direction. It has been subject to a wide range of conflicting demands, pressures, and criticisms. A Crisis in Care? examines these challenges and their impact on social work practice. This volume provides an analysis of the political, professional, and organizational development of social work in Britain; examines the development of the knowledge base of social work and its historical roots; discusses the proposed changes of direction for social work which have been issued from the state over the last decade; and highlights issues surrounding the social and cultural diversity needs that social work has failed to meet, focusing on issues of gender, ethnicity, sexuality, and disability. A book presenting a distinctive approach to the analysis of social work, A Crisis in Care? will provide stimulating reading for social work students and professionals interested in the historical roots and recent changes in social work in Britain.

Synopsis:

An analysis of the issues facing social work in the 1990s, and an introduction to the state of social work in contemporary Britain. It examines aspects of the historical development of social work and their relationship to the present crisis, and assesses the prospects for its future.

Synopsis:

This stimulating and authoritative book offers a distinctive analysis of the state of social work in contemporary Britain.

Among the issues addressed are: challenges from the state in the form of inquiries, reviews and new legislative initiatives, including the Children Act and community care legislation; challenges posed by criticisms from social workers themselves, clients and potential clients about the ways in which power and control are exercised in social work; and challenges arising from the social and cultural diversity of needs which social work must meet, including issues of gender, ethnicity, sexuality and disability.
