DESCRIPTION
Now in its fourth edition, this international best-selling textbook is a classic in its field. Written by one of the leading names in social work, it provides a comprehensive and critical overview of the main practice theories that will act as a companion for students throughout their course and their career as a practitioner. In this substantially reworked and updated fourth edition of his best-selling text, Malcolm Payne presents clear and concise evaluations of the pros and cons of major theories that inform social work practice, and comparisons between them. This is the ideal text for theory, methods and practice modules on qualifying social work courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level, as well qualified social work practitioners taking post-qualifying and CPD courses.
REVIEWS
'This text is a tour de force! The new edition is impressive in its scope and consistent application of a social construction perspective. The increased use of diagrams and case illustrations will help students to access some important and complicated aspects of theory.' - Joan Orme, University of Glasgow, UK 'A wonderful resource for students, practitioners, and academics. The new edition is comprehensive and has been brought right up to date, providing clear explanations of the breadth of theories social work has engaged with over time.' - Sarah Wendt, UNISA, Australia 'A really thoroughly revised and updated edition of what is probably the best known and certainly the longest-running UK text on social work theory.' - Chris Beckett, University of East Anglia, UK "I regard Payne's Modern Social Work Theory as a classic and the best of its type. It not only covers theories well for new social workers but is an excellent refresher for more seasoned academics." - Jan Fook, Kingston University, UK
