Your Social Work Practice Placement
From Start to Finish



December 2013 | 216 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Embarking on a first practice placement can be an anxious experience for social work students. This textbook takes them step-by-step through the process, holding their hand through preparation for practice modules and during the course of the placement itself. Focusing on practicalities, knowledge, values and skills, the authors guide students through the challenges they may face.

Chapters include numerous real-life case examples which reflect a range of varying placement contexts including different settings, service-user groups, locations and areas of practice. The book will help students become confident on placement and lead to rich placement experiences which will benefit them throughout the rest of their degree and upon entry to the profession.

Your Social Work Practice Placements is essential reading for all social care students.

A textbook that students can relate to and use for both first and last placements. It 'demystifies' what being on 'placement' is all about and provides useful information in a general context.
