About this book


As social work adapts to the challenge of a mixed economy of welfare, this book offers a reassertion of the vital contribution of social work in the welfare structures of the 1990s. Drawing on the recent history of social work, Terry Bamford argues that the values of the profession can share a vigorous and creative response in smaller, more flexible employment structures. New strategies for organisation and training are advanced to equip social workers for a more entrepreneurial role.
