This book will give students insight into the field of social work and enhance there study skills. It clearly breaks down complex issues so the student will have a more sound understanding.
A basic book useful to some who need additional help in studying especially those who have returned to study after a long break
Although the book title states that it is for social workers, it is equally relevant to the community workers and social care practitioners that I work with, which isn't always the case. The coverage of subjects is wide-ranging and thought provoking.
Excellent book. The format of activities and reflection points translates very well into seminar content. Extremely student friendly
Brilliant for tutors and learners alike. All the information needed is included and helps the learner improve.
An excellent text for students embarking on the Social work pathway. Not just for Undergraduate level. Some of the content is relevant to those at Access level. I will be recommending this to both Access and undergraduate students.
Excellent book that lays out practical skills for students wading through their Social Work courses, assisting in how to prioritise their workload while building confidence that the task is achievable.
Highlights the range of tasks to be completed in an effective and easy to understand manner.
I have handed this book around to students in practice tutorials, and suggested they may want to take a look at it. It has been especially useful with my first year BSc tutees. I particularly like the study exercises.
