Social Work: Contexts and Practice is a comprehensive introduction to the field of social work. Now in its third edition, it continues to speak to both Australia and Aotearoa, addressing common trans-Tasman concerns while at the same time responding to the unique experiences of social work within each country. There is a vibrant interplay of trans-Tasman perspectives and practices while at the same time recognising the relevance of your own national and cultural environment. The book is divided into three broad sections. Part 1 explores the context of practice and the broad-ranging influences that shape the profession, particularly its vision and development. New to this section is a chapter on 'Spirituality in Social Work', as well as content on working with asylum seekers. Part 2 considers the diverse fields of practice in which social workers find employment, some of which include mental health, disability, older people and child welfare. New to this section is a chapter on 'Youth Health, Mental Health and Well-being', and 'Social Work in the Context of Climate Change and Disasters'. Part 3 looks at the professional issues in social work practice, such as research, occupational stress, supervision practices and the law.
