About this book

This handbook addresses the issues and challenges of the delivery of social work education in the contemporary world. It provides an authoritative overview of the key debates, switching the lens away from a Western-centric focus to engage with a much broader audience in countries that are in the process of modernization and professionalization, alongside those where social work education is more developed. Chapters tackle major challenges with respect to curriculum, teaching, practice, and training in light of globalization, providing a thorough examination of the practice of social work in diverse contexts. This handbook presents a contribution to the process of knowledge exchange which is essential to global social work education. It brings together professional knowledge and lived experience, both universal and local, and aims to be an essential reference for social work educators, researchers, and students.

Reviews

“This book is an important contribution to the body of literature not only on social work education, but social work and social development praxis. It has been written at a critical juncture when the world seems to be inundated with new and old threats such as inter alia: racism, xenophobia, gender-based violence, climate change, a migrant crisis, and reactionary politicians ascending to power in the traditional liberal democracies and in other parts of the globe. More than ever, social work education needs to adequately equip students with relevant knowledge and skills to respond to the aforementioned challenges. This book will be useful to educators, practitioners, policymakers, and students as it practically covers sixty chapters from forty-three countries located in different regions of the world.”
Ndangwa Noyoo, Head of the Department of Social Development, University of Cape Town, South Africa
