An effective introduction to social work, with a clear three-part structure and interactive chapters within it. All chapters contain interesting activities, case studies, reflections on the research and suggested further reading lists which allow the reader to deepen their understanding of individual topics. However, its biggest asset lies in the collaboration of so many professionals whose extensive knowledge, experience and interesting perspectives make this book an excellent starting point in the social work education.
This is a good introduction for students embarking on a social work career
A considered and thoughtful approach to the subject.
This book contains an excellent chapter on ethics and values that is very useful for my students. Some of the case studies have proved vital during the pandemic where practical work placement activities have proven difficult for the students.
I found this a really good go to book for introducing students to the world of social work. It was also easy to read and relate to.
excellent book with useful ideas for additional reading and students notes it is accessible and easy to read.
Very helpful publication, relevant and updated with current references to research and practice, mapped against PCF which offers additional help for students preparing for placement. It will be certainly added to the reading list for the next academic year!
Good introductory text.
