This book examines key sociological theories that have contributed to the understanding of the nature of social work, its organisation and delivery.

Taking a practical approach to social work, and focusing on the application of theory, the book also provides insightful discussions to important thinkers such as Douglas, Beck and Furedi, and how their ideas have direct relevance for understanding the risk averse nature of social work.
