A useful introduction for social work students and one I have refrred my students to time and time again. Invaluable.
I am a new lecturer here at Brighton and have not had input into the reading list. However, I have found this book very useful, particularly the sections on mastering the key roles. I have mentioned the book to some of my tutees.
I was not able to view the online resource.
This is a really useful text for students in their first year of training- it will help them make sense of what it is they have taken on.
I found this book to be of use to students studying to become a social worker as it provides students the information they need to progress into social work in an informed and knowledgable way.
A comprehensive & well crafted text that provides SW student's (& educators) with an excellent guide for learning and professional competence. I particularly enjoyed the chapters on students' journey's, theory & research, mastering key roles on placement & politics & cultures.
A very good clear book. Excellent!
