Overview

In an effort to broaden the debate between the social work community and the news media, Making Social Work News explores the range of news coverage given to social service's work with children and families. Author Meryl Aldridge examines the differences in the news treatment of social work between national and tabloid newspapers and between national and local press, and examines the news media accounts of social work by agencies other than social services, as well as with clients other than children and families. In conclusion, the text considers whether social work has particular problems in defining its goals and lobbying on its own behalf.

While focusing its study on the British press, Making Social Work News is highly applicable to the United States, where social services very frequently receive similarly unsympathetic news treatment. All those involved with social work, sociology, social policy as well as the news media will find this interestingreading.
