Consideration for child welfare course
This is a very interesting read and one which covers a wide range of issues relevant to social work. Although the book's focus is international social work the issues raised also provide context for considering key issues in the UK today. Although I have adopted this book for working with students in relation to practice and widening their thoughts on social work issues I have no doubt I will also be using it when discussing social policy.
This book is full of extremely relevant & up -to date information of use accross all three levels of the degree, 4, 5 & 6. We were lacking a textbook which was comprehensive, contemporanous & easy to interpret so essential reading for all 100 plus L6 s this year.
Insufficiently academic for my purposes
I was particularly struck by the books wide focus with regards to womens rights and also religious fundamentalism. The book appears to sign post to other areas of reading and research and would be a valuable teaching and study tool.
