Global social work is under pressure as a result of rising austerity measures, market forces, and changes to the very relationship between individuals and the welfare state. This book argues that despite these challenges, social work has developed a rich array of practice interventions and remains committed through its strong value base to helping and supporting people in need. Looking beyond the dominant areas of child protection, adult care, and mental health, What is the Future of Social Work? considers a wide range of perspectives on what lies ahead for the profession and its practitioners.
