grey quote markI find the series really helpful as a student social worker. The books are easy to read and cover many topics, along with case studies which put sometimes abstract concepts into examples that we may be likely to encounter in our practice.

grey quote markI learnt to critically reflect on social work in my student days using the Transforming Social Work Practice books. Clearly written and relevant, packed with activities and case studies, and equally suited to classroom use or self-study, I predict students will constantly dip into it for assignments.
