Nick Coady, Faculty of Social Work The second edition of Nick's co-edited textbook on clinical social work practice theory was published last year. Although this book is largely a survey of clinical theory, it is grounded in a generalist-eclectic framework for social work practice that includes an emphasis on the importance of relationship factors and the artistic elements of practice. Nick has also recently completed a research report on menís experiences of child welfare services and the findings will be part of coauthored chapter in a forthcoming book.
