'For many readers, especially trainers and educationalists, the thoroughness of this book is likely to be attractive. The added advantage of O'Connor et al's book is that it covers social work for both adults and children. [This book] is likely to appear on many social work reading lists. [It has] the potential to provide good learning opportunities for post-qualifying as well as pre-qualifying training' - Health and Social Care in the Community
Sets practice placements in a contextual framework
I really enjoyed this book, very easy to read and a must for anyone wishing to explore the theory of social work and social care practice. It gives an in depth account of the ethical underpinnings of both disciplines essentially asking students to reflect on why it is they have chosen to follow this career path.
I have taken material from this book and included them in my power point presentations and will order some copies for our library. I am recommending that the students look at it in terms of supplemental reading.
This title is also available on SAGE Knowledge, the ultimate social sciences online library. If your library doesn’t have access, ask your librarian to start a trial.
