This final book in our social work trilogy has continued the journey of practice development in social work. Continued professional development in the complex world of social work depends on social workers coming to grips with the uncertainties and complexities of practice. Interwoven with these themes is that of integration. The further theme we have continued from our two previous books (Adams et al., 2009a, 2009b) is that of connectedness, as practice involves working across disciplinary, professional and organisational boundaries. We have argued that the challenges of practice require practitioners to adopt an integrative style of working in different settings, as they undertake management and leadership roles and develop a research focus. This book has been structured around these three aspects: Part 1 has dealt with major areas of practice, Part 2 with leadership and management and Part 3 with research.
