At this point in the book, the focus will shift somewhat to bring into consideration a range of rather more concrete manifestations of power which in their different ways help to shape the context for social work intervention and affect day-to-day practice directly. I have chosen specifically to focus on three key areas: the structural forces which shape the social work agenda (see Jones, 2001); the organizational context; and the service user perspective. Each of these will be addressed over the next three chapters.
