Abstract: This general issue contains two papers from Israel, two from Australia, one from New Zealand and one from the UK. Differences in policy, practice and culture are evident and enrich our understanding of how social work is thought about and conducted in different parts of the world. Familiar themes are also evident: the value of supervision, the importance of the relationship, the contribution of knowledge, the significance of theory–and the obstacles that social work encounters in all these areas. The papers reflect a range of research methods and approaches to writing, lending the issue the interest of diversity.
