Description

Social work is a challenging yet rewarding career. It involves dealing with a range of people and situations and requires knowledge, skill and a commitment to important professional values. This well-written book, from one of social work's most highly respected authors, provides an informative and thought-provoking introduction to what it is to be a successful social worker. Focusing on the challenges of achieving good practice, this new edition incorporates extensive updates. It reflects recent developments in social work within the context of contemporary society, law and policy. It also features a wide variety of practice examples and new 'Voice of Experience' quotes, giving readers an exciting insight into the job of today's practitioners. Described as a 'must-have' by current students, this popular text continues to offer an excellent foundation for readers considering a career in social work; students in the early stages of training; and anyone wanting a better understanding of the social work role.
