"The Encyclopaedia does fulfill its aim: 'to provide accurate, up-to-date and lively explications of key topics in social work and in fields that are closely related to social work theory or practice.' The Encyclopaedia successfully encompasses both the value base of social work and its evidence base ... I think it is a very useful and innovative volume ... It is a rich source of information about the broad church which is social work." Journal of Social Work
