2009. 254 pp. Pb. 26,00 (D), 26,80 (A), US$ 39.95, GBP 22.95
The quest to create an evidence-based Social Work practice is emerging strongly in different fields of Social Work and social policy.
In this volume internationally renowned proponents and opponents of this approach deliver profound analyses of the meaning and implications of an evidence based perspective which clearly challenges the nature of the knowledge base of the established Social Work practice and apparently reevaluates and reshapes the character of welfare professionalism.
This book effectively unpicks the politics of implementation within the broader context of welfare change. Through the diversity of contributions, the book challenges the reader to critically examine the assumptions of both „camps in the debate to date. This book undoubtedly provides a forum for moving the debate about evidence-based practice beyond the simplistic for-against arguments towards a meaningful exploration of future directions for social work.
