'This excellent, accessible and well organised book will be invaluable to all students of social work. A range of activities, case studies and examples which will be useful in undergraduate and postgraduate training are included. Interprofessional Collaboration in Social Work Practice offers a new insight on the profession.' - Fran Fuller, Senior Lecturer in Social Work, University of Derby
'For someone beginning to engage in collaboration and considering how to be collaborative in their practice, this book introduces some foundational and valuable considerations. For those of us with more reading and experience it is a good reminder of what we can do to make collaborative relationships effective for communities and families.'
We wanted to make our interprofessional modules less hospital focused and support a social care focus too.
Used on a course for professional social workers who work in adult safeguarding, the book gives a good overview on the benefits of collaborating with both professionals, carers and services users, a vital theme in this postgraduate programme.
This book discusses the historical context of collaborative practice and also looks at Social Work's contribution to it. It considers the implications of working with a number of different disciplines and the impact on the individual professional. A very helpful book, particularly for students on the degree course.
Some good links between theory and practice. Chapter 5 I am going to recond for all my students to read.
An excellent resource for students studying modules around multi agency/ multi professional working..
Interprofessional working is fundamental to all courses and it is valuable to understand the impact of social work professionals within the context of healthcare provision. Easily readable text with reflective triggers
Includes a good chapter on theoretical frameworks to support the understanding of interrelationships between professionals. Also, some useful exercises about professional identity.
A useful addition to texts in this increasingly important area of social work. Activities and reflective practice questions are helpful to students, the glossary is helpful too.
Organises thinking around these issues into themes that make it a more thought provoking read for students.
We are going to recommend this book on a new module we have designed: Critical thinking and professional development. It is one of the few books that deals with interprofessional collaboration related to both social work and youth work so we thinki it is suitable for student practice.
Very helpful. Interprofessional work may be a litttle different i Sweden compared to UK, but the book provides useful strategies and principles reagrdless of that.
Crawford captures some of the keys issues for both practitioners and services users in using an interprofessional collaborative approach in practice. A useful text for students of many professional disciplines.
this book is an excellent, insightful and practical guide to interprofessional working. the reflective excercises and suggestions are useful and all relevant theory and models are covered.
I really like this book. It is clear , well written and at a level appropriate for 1st year MA students or 2nd year UGs. I like the range of areas the book addressed which were covered comprehensively and not in a superficial way. Good linking of theory to practice.
Excellent resource. comprehensive, clearly written and research based
