Psychology provides an essential backdrop to social work practice but there are few sources that summarize its theories and findings in a way that is easily accessible to students. This compact and practical text answers this need in applying key ideas, skills, and research from psychology to contemporary social work in a variety of settings. Substantially revised to take account of the latest developments, this is a wide-ranging and authoritative introduction to a complex subject.
PAULA NICOLSON is Professor of Health Psychology at the University of Sheffield. ROWAN BAYNE is Professor of Psychology at University of East London. JENNY OWEN is Lecturer in Health Studies at the University of Sheffield.
