We began the book by recognising that social workers practice in the middle ground, between the individual and society. They need to know something of individuals and their psychological make-up. They need to know something of the social context and environment in which clients live their lives. Practitioners work with people on the margins, who are vulnerable, disadvantaged, and failing to cope. They meet the troubled and troublesome. They face inequality and injustice.
