Summary

In Social Work for Sociologists, a team of international authors with backgrounds in social work and sociology explain and illustrate how "the social work imagination" links theory and practice to interventions and outcomes. Van Heugten, Gibbs, and contributors address lingering disciplinary divisions and controversies about the appropriateness of engaging with public issues and social justice concerns, and introduce key values, ethics, and practice frameworks. Finally, they illustrate the utility of social work practice frameworks in fields including child welfare, group work, bicultural and multicultural practice, community work, workplace mobbing, and research.
