This innovative book provides an introduction to the area. Using concrete examples taken from practice around the world, Social Development in Social Work address questions such as: How should social development be understood as a core aspect of social work practice? What is the significance of economics, politics and the environment for a developmental approach in social work? How may a comparative understanding of social welfare practices, programs and policies enhance social development in social work? In what ways does social development contribute to international and domestic social work? What skills, knowledge and theory do social workers need to practise in this field? Arguing that social development should be at the centre of contemporary social work practice and theory, this book is ideal for social work students and academics with an interest in social development, international social work, social justice, social policy and community social work.
