Social Work: Contexts and Practice is a comprehensive introduction to the field of social work. Now in its third edition, it continues to speak to both Australia and Aotearoa, addressing common trans-Tasman concerns while at the same time responding to the unique experiences of social work within each country. The book is divided into three broad sections: Part 1 explores the context of practice and the broad-ranging influences that shape the profession, particularly its vision and development; Part 2 then considers the diverse fields of practice in which social workers find employment; and Part 3 looks at the professional developments that both support and challenge social workers.
