Synopsis

This best-selling book explores the crucial role of social workers in securing a better future for vulnerable and disadvantaged adult service users. Tacking the problems most common to this branch of social work it focuses on four major themes: personalization; mental health; substance use; and old age. Edited by the highly respected Martin Davies, and with contributions from some of the leading names in the field, Social Work with Adults provides a clear map and guidance to help navigate between the different elements of social work knowledge and practice. Whether a student on an undergraduate degree taking a module on working with adults or a qualified professional wanting to ensure they are proving the very best service they can, this is essential reading. The breadth and depth of coverage makes this text a perfect handbook for students of adult social work.

Martin Davies is Professor Emeritus at the University of East Anglia, UK, where he was the founding Director of the Graduate Programme in Social Work. He is the author of seven books and more than a hundred scholarly papers. He is editor of The Blackwell Encyclopaedia of Social Work and The Blackwell Companion to Social Work, now in its third edition. His text, The Essential Social Worker, also in its third edition, was based on the UEA course on social work in society, which he taught for twenty years. His most recent authored text, Doing a Successful Research Project, has sold over 8,500 copies since publication in 2007.
