Social Work, Social Policy and Older People
Service User & Carer Participation | Social Policy | Social Work & Older Clients
Fantastic book as it deals effectively with three huge topics that are inextricably linked to be relevant to both practitioners and academics.
It is increasingly important for social workers to ensure they have good practice skills in working with older people. This book helps to achieve this!
With an ageing demographic this will form key recommended reading as part of the social policy module-thisis an esily acessible text, that addresses key issues in social policy and the relationship between key policy decisions and socil work practice- a fast moving subject area- thanks
This is an invaluable resource to all social work students.I will be using it as a recommended text on our new MA Social Work programme.One area for future development is to explore policy divergence post devolution.
A lucid and accessible text which covers substantive issues relating to working with older people. The reading lists and critical thinking exercises are particularly useful. A more sustained discussion of sexuality and older people would have been welcomed.
Eaasy to read, up to date text, that thoroughly examines the links between current social work practices and histiorical social policies.
I particularly liked the critical thinking exercises.
An excellent overview of social policy and social work in relation to policies and services for older people.
