How does a social work student make the connection between sociological knowledge and day-to-day social work?

Sociology for Social Workers and Probation Officers provides an introduction to sociological ideas and research and places them firmly into the context of actual social work practice. It encourages readers to develop critical awareness and reach their own judgements about the usefulness and implications of holding certain conceptual positions and shows how social work can be better informed and improved by doing so.

Fully revised and updated throughout, this second edition examines sociology in relation to key areas of social work and probation practice, and includes one new chapter. Areas covered are:





Care and Caring

Health and Illness


Essential reading for all social work and probation studies students, this text looks beyond individual and psychological explanations and solutions to develop a sociological knowledge base for social work practice.

`In her immensely readable book, Professor Cree enthusiastically demonstrates that the study of sociology can help students improve their social work practice. In doing so, she shows that sociology has been a key influence on politics in the past 50 years - especially in its analysis of family and community.' - Martin Davies, University of East Anglia, UK
