Quality resource for social workers and others on timely topics; event to celebrate release April 25

WASHINGTON, April 25 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and Oxford University Press are proud to announce the 20th Edition of the Encyclopedia of Social Work. Since its last publication in 1995, the Encyclopedia of Social Work has broadened and deepened its covered areas of practice to include issues such as immigration, technology, the implications of managed care, trauma and disaster.

"The Encyclopedia of Social Work is the premier reference for social workers around the world as they are guided by the need to learn more about practice and policy," says Elizabeth Clark, Ph.D., ACSW, MPH, executive director of NASW. "The complete coverage of the field of social work, which is international in scope, can be found in this resource."

The latest edition of the Encyclopedia of Social Work is the core reference in the field, essential for fact-finding, studying for licensing exams, supplementing course work and supporting practice decisions. More than 400 subject areas and 300 biographical entries make this an excellent reference for social workers and others interested in social issues.

A celebratory event for editors, associate editors, authors and others will be held at 6 p.m. on April 25, 2008 at the National Press Club. At this event, the NASW Press and Oxford University Press will honor the editors and authors for their stellar work in creating this volume of social work knowledge for the profession.

"This venture between NASW and Oxford University Press is vital to the advancement of the profession and to the understanding of social work," notes Cheryl Bradley, publisher of the NASW Press. "We are pleased that this important work includes new and updated information on timeless topics and discusses timely topics that have come into relevance since the last publication."

Each article in the Encyclopedia of Social Work is written by a top academic or social work practitioner and includes a bibliography for further reading. Editors Terry Mizrahi, Ph.D., MSW and Larry Davis, Ph.D., MSW ensured that all entries have been updated, revised, rewritten or newly-commissioned since the 19th edition came out in 1995.
