Abstract

Social work practice in the twenty-first century is continually changing. Contemporary practitioners work in complex areas and have to do so quickly and competently. This text helps qualified social workers, as well as those about to qualify, to build on their initial studies in order to develop professionally. The focus in this chapter is on anti-ageist practice in the light of recent research on older people's experiences of everyday age discrimination.
