Series description:

Springer Series in International Social Work & Springer Briefs in International Social Work:

Springer Series in International Social Work is a series of full-length monographs and contributed volumes that presents a global portrait of social work education within and across different economic, cultural and political contexts. Volumes published in this Series mainly probe different aspects of social work education such as curriculum, pedagogy, practice and research in both local and global contexts. Further, contributions that deal with the development and delivery of social work education and its connection with different service users, such as minority groups, vulnerable groups and social exclusion, also are included to explore the position and development of social work education and practice in different countries across the globe. The objectives of the Series include, among others, to (1) present a true portrait of international social work scholarship and its challenges in different cultural contexts; (2) invigorate the challenges involved in training future social workers for practice in diverse contexts and social realities; (3) demonstrate a clear significance and contribution to advancing knowledge in the areas of: indigenization of knowledge, practice methods and interventions; post-colonial social work; social work ethics and values; determining the scope of social work in different socio-political-economic and cultural contexts; (4) present specific models, both conceptual and practical, related to multi-cultural, cross-national and international social work education; and (5) examine emerging perspectives on: leadership in social work; media, technology and teaching; and social work in the era of social media.

Springer Series in International Social Work covers a range of contributions and perspectives from cross-national and comparative social work education, practice and research of interest to a global audience. Both solicited and unsolicited manuscripts are considered for publication in this Series.

Springer Series in Social Work and Social Change &  Springer Briefs in Social Work and Social Change:

Springer Series in Social Work and Social Change is a series of full-length monographs and contributed volumes on the state-of-the-art literature on social work and social change as well as globalization and social change, neoliberalism and social change, and societal response to social change, with special reference to social work education, research and practice.

The principal aim of the Series is to examine social change in a constantly changing world with new economic, political and social orders and how social work as a human service profession responds to these changes. Contributions in this Series go beyond accepting change as an inevitable force and reflect on our power in influencing, redirecting and contemplating social change. It is with this principal aim that we call upon academia, policy-makers, researchers and educators in social work, at all levels of their career stage, to explore the positive part of social change; i.e., what can we learn from social change while revisiting its negativity and impact. Volumes published in this Series approach social change at different levels of society (whether local, regional, national, transnational, or at the macro, meso and micro levels).

The Series identifies and defines the concept of social change within the social work context and its impact on human development at various national and international scopes. Springer Series in Social Work and Social Change is a comprehensive collection of high-quality literature on social change, with a primary focus on social work, contributed by educators, researchers, and practitioners across the globe. Both solicited and unsolicited manuscripts are considered for publication in this Series.
