In breve

This volume offers a consideration of key issues in social work with children, young people and families across the "new" European Union. It successfully balances diversity with thematic coherence and includes issues ranging tram ethics and rights, through to child protection and training, and countries as far apart as Poland to England and Sweden to Cyprus. Aimed at social work academics, students and practitioners, there are 12 chapters in 3 sections: issues related to the context; themes within practice and service delivery, and discussions of the profession itself. Drawing on original and secondary research, and utilising various comparative approaches, the volume can lay serious claims to be ground-breaking as a truly European social work text.
