This new dictionary provides over 1,500 A-Z definitions of terms from the field of social care, concentrating on social work as a significant area within this field. Covering social work theories, methods, policies, organizations, and statutes, as well as key terms from interdisciplinary topics such as health and education, this is the most up-to-date dictionary of its kind available. It also provides extended entries on specialisms such as children and families, domestic violence, and residential care.

Useful appendices include a glossary of acronyms and a Table of Legislation, Regulations, and Codes of Practice.
Entry-level bibliographies and web links provide further resources and the web links are listed and regularly updated on a dedicated companion website.

A Dictionary of Social Work and Social Care is a must-have for students of social care and related subjects, as well as for qualified social workers undertaking continuing professional development programmes.

Review

supply social care and social work students, academics and practitioners in the UK with hand reference resources, [for] which their colleagues in many other countries can only envy them (European Journal of Social Work (No. 18), Jerzy Szmagalski)

This has to be the best social work and social care dictionary I have come across (Professional Social Work)

This dictionary features 1,500-plus terms and concepts related to the social work field. In addition to social work, it includes definitions for related issues in psychology, sociology, and social policy... This dictionary should be beneficial to those new to the discipline. It provides enough detail to help familiarize readers with many of the universal theories and principles associated with social work. (S. L. Pham, for CHOICE, July 2013)
