'This is a much welcome book providing an engaging, informative and accessible introduction to human growth and development for social workers...(It) will undoubtedly be invaluable reading for social work students, a learning companion during social work training and an interesting and enjoyable read for those already in practice.' - Gabriela Misca, Keele University, UK 'The book skilfully instructs and interacts with the reader. It presents information in a way that will appeal to learners at different stages offering both introductory and in-depth levels of knowledge. These unique features make this book an indispensable text for student social workers in learning and practice environments.' - Nora Duckett, London Metropolitan University,UK 'John Sudbury has provided a human growth and development textbook full of interest. Written specifically for social work, readers will be able to engage with it at various levels - from the personal impact of narratives, case studies and reflective questions, to the more in depth academic content in outlines of key theoretical issues.' - Ruben Martin, University of Kent, UK 'The author’s interest in psychosocial perspectives and his rich experience as practitioner, manager and academic social worker/researcher ensure the quality and rigor of this text.' - Clare Parkinson, Senior Lecturer, University of East London, UK
