In de zomer van 2018 verschijnt dit boek met bijdragen vanuit de hele wereld. De samenstelling van het boek is in handen van Dr. Eltje Bos, lector Culturele en Sociale Dynamiek, en van Professor Ephrat Huss, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israël.

Although there is much art use related to social work, such as arts-based research, visual culture, visual anthropology, community art, photo-voice, art therapy, outsider art, arts in conflict negotiation, and arts for social change, they are not canonized within the social work literature.

Organized into three sections, this book shows how arts have been used by social workers with specific populations
and in specific countries. Each section provides the specific skills, techniques and theoretical issues used in each example in a handy summary thus furnishing readers with the theoretical and practice knowledge of how to use arts from within social work rather than as a borrowed element.
