Skills for Social Work Practice, Hardback Book

Skills for Social Work Practice Hardback

Part of the Transforming Social Work Practice Series series


Social work skills are essential to good practice and more important than ever following changes to the social work curriculum.

Students must be able to demonstrate knowledge of core skills within policy, law as well as demonstrating empathy and good communication.

This fully-revised student guide, previously published as Social Work Skills with Adults, will help to cement these skills and includes chapters on intervention, empowerment and advocacy, skills for collaborative working, self-presentation and much more.

This book will equip social work students with the skills to meet the new and perennial challenges to achieving empowering practice with carers and people who use services. There are chapters on working with families, communities and individuals and how social policy affects all of these groups.

Case studies and reflective exercises are used throughout to explore these issues and help link theory to practice.
