Good overview on assessment and intervention at undergraduate level
This book provides a clear and authoritative approach to a difficult area of social work
A good introductory text on assessment
Whilst I enjoyed this book, I felt that it could have covered some areas in greater depth but overall it was a useful resource.
Great book for examining assessment, which is core to social work practice.
A key text for this module. Very clear presentation of the issues.
An essential introduction for qualifying students
User friendly guide to the world of assessment that covers key social work issues.
The focus on the placement setting (agency realities, role tensions, resource constraints) will make this book particularly appealing to students on placement. I would have liked the author to say a little more about the applicability of theory and research evidence, but this is available elsewhere and I feel the book is making a useful pitch as a 'real world perspective' contribution.
I liked the very approachable, engaing style that encourages the reader to think through the areas presented. Themes are clearly explored - more suited to undergraduates and will use with these students primarily. Particualry liked the chapter on risk - for this alone I might well suggest that non SW AMHP trainees suplement their reading with this text
Beckett's text will prove invaluable to students at all levels of qualifying education in social work. Clear and accessible, this book will be invaluable in both class and practice settings.
A useful book with good solid concepts and practical guidance for student social workers. Will be adopted for our preparation for practice course.
Well written and accessible introduction to the subjects. Will inform preparation for practice.
Another well written text, informative when preparing lectures and clearly written so students feel able to read and reference it with confidence.
An excellent text for our social work students on practice placement modules
Working in local authority and academia in the last few years has highlighted the challenges students face when embarking on a degree programme in social work, given the ever changing and ever uncertain environment we face.
Assessment & Intervention in Social Work -Preparing for Practice fills a specific need in systemically addressing the themes that runs through social work programmes.
Clewrly laid out book- useful for all levels on BA Social Work
This is an excellent text for students and practitioners in the field . Concisely and intelligently written, it is an accessible and helpful guide to social work process.
A good base book for students, also recommended to those on PQ course
A very comprehensive and insightful book which we are happy to recommend to students. Several students have used the book for their end of module assignment
