It covers emerging theory relating to work with families, children and young people, refugees, older people, indigenous practice and more, while explaining different models that can be used. It explores interventions in different contexts including community development, mental
health settings, partnerships with disabled people, work with Pacific communities, crosscultural practice and the elements of evidence-informed and ethical practice.
