Then you can rest assured that you are not alone and that you have come to the right place.

Split in two parts, it starts out by taking you step-by-step through the historical and theoretical context of social policy and social work, before moving on to look in depth at how social policy impacts upon people at different stages in their life course. A range studies, reflection points and activities."--Back cover
