Social Work & Community Development
Policy Press is committed to ‘making a difference’ in social work, as the tag line for our flagship series Social Work in Practice attests. This new series, edited by Viviene Cree and Steve Myers, presents high quality textbooks that use a problem-based learning approach to explore and explain key areas of social work practice. As well as undergraduate and post-qualifying textbooks, our list includes monographs and polemic books, which aim to take forward academic thinking about social work, and raise challenging questions for policy and practice.
Another highlight in this area is our exciting series of concise and accessible books on partnership working in health and social care – Better Partnership Working, edited by Jon Glasby and Helen Dickinson – providing a really practical ‘how to’ to the core aspects of working across health and social care. We have a long backlist of excellent research-based work in social care which we are sure you will also be interested in exploring.
