I found this book particularly useful for a starting point for further research into specific areas that I was being faced with in my day-to-day practice as a Student Social Worker. I also enjoyed the theory element of this book as it supported me in completing various assignments where Theory was required to be utilised throughout. This book has supported me through my first year as a Student and I will continue to refer to this during the duration of the course.
the book covers essential social work theories.
it is good for social work students.
Brilliant book on theories would highly recommend
A great easy to read A-Z of social work theory with brief descriptions of key terminology. Useful links to further reading throughout the book.
This book introduces SW students to a wealth of theory, covering a very broad approach. This encourages students to think widely about what theory is relevant to their practice on Placement. The format means that they can dip into it and then follow up the references and recommended reading.
