International social work: social problems, cultural issues and social work education
Barbara Budrich, Mar 1, 2007 - Political Science - 189 pages
This book focuses on three key issues of international social work: international dimensions of social problems and how social work practice can deal with these challenges; cultural issues social workers have to think of when practicing, teaching, and developing social work on an international level; and aspects of international approaches in social work education. The authors practice and teach social work in several countries and their professional experience gives them the chance to gain profound experience in international social work. Therefore, the authors not only write about international perspectives, but also write from an international perspective.
