Description: Payne (director of psychosocial and spiritual care, St. Christopher's Hospice, London, UK) presents a new edition of his introduction to modern social work theory. He first deals with general questions of social work theory, its definition, and how it is put into practice. The rest of the work examines individual schools of theory in terms of their main themes and applications, covering psychodynamic perspectives; crisis intervention and task-centered models; cognitive-behavioral theories; systems and ecological perspectives; social psychology and social construction; humanism, existentialism, and spirituality; social and community development; radical and critical perspectives; feminist perspectives; anti-discrimination and cultural and ethnic sensitivity; and empowerment and advocacy.
