Book Launch Event

An event to launch Prof. Viv Cree's new book, 'Social Work: A Reader', will be held in Blackwell's bookshop, Edinburgh on 1st December, 2010.

Viv Cree

This inspiring Reader brings together some of the most significant ideas which have informed social work practice over the last forty years. Exploring these fundamental ideas, the book includes commentaries that allow the reader to understand the texts on their own terms as well as to be aware of their relations to each other and to the wider social work context.

An accessible introduction contextualises the reader, summarising the main themes and highlighting key issues.

The launch will be introduced by Prof Charlie Jeffery, Head of the School of Social and Political Science, The University of Edinburgh and Ruth Stark, Scottish Professional Officer of the British Association of Social Workers (BASW).
