Substance use has become an increasingly common concern for all aspects of social work practice, and especially when working with mental health and vulnerable families. This requires all social workers to have sufficient education and training in alcohol and other drugs across a range of settings. This volume presents evidence from a number of major studies which examine the current state of social work education in relation to substance use. These contextual considerations are complemented by specific applied analyses which explore classroom, methodological, practice and theoretical considerations within both the UK and America. Substance Use in Social Work Education and Training provides a strong evidence base for the effectiveness of appropriately-targeted education and support given to social workers. It further substantiates calls for a greater inclusion of more on substance use in social work education and curricula. This book is based on a special issue of the journal Social Work Education.

"Fieldwork is considered to be an integral part of social work education by all the schools of social work. It is a pity that the concept of fieldwork is presumed to be well-understood by all the schools. Manuals and prospectuses give descriptive statements about the importance of fieldwork without defining it. As it has turned out fieldwork, instead of being an integral part of social work education, has by and large, remained only as its peripheral activity. This book is a pioneering work, which would enable the teachers, students and social work practitioners to make use of theoretical knowledge in fieldwork. It will also help those in real-life situations requiring social intervention or assistance by individuals, groups or communities from a professional social worker, acquisition of skills in social work method through practice of theory, inculcation of appropriate attitudes and development of capacity for conceptualisation from practice. The book will prove to be an essential text for students, researchers, academicians and planners."
