This book considers a variety of social work methods and methodologies from several European countries, placing them in the context of their underpinning values.
Across Europe and the world, the social work profession relies for its interventions on a wide variety of methods and techniques. The broad frameworks of this methodology guides social workers through the process of developing and creating interventions with different stakeholders, and also underpins the ethical understanding of social work.
The adoption of an international perspective enables social workers to share, discuss and compare different approaches, experiences, theories, and research about social work’s diverse methods and methodologies. Exchanges about the variety of approaches can enlarge our knowledge, and demonstrate the diverse routes by which theory is translated into practice in different national settings and welfare contexts.
