The book will give consideration to the challenges posed by working within a context of austerity and structural inequalities such as poverty, discrimination and political and economic tensions for service delivery. Relationships and communication are the foundation of good social work practice highlighted in the national and international literature. However, social work practice is coming under increased scrutiny in the current socio-political climate. It is crucial that the book takes cognisance of this but it will offer the reader a reassuring and refreshing approach to practice.
