Product description

Become a confident and effective practitioner with Practising Social Work in a Complex World. It provides the clearest and most authoritative introduction available to working in situations characterised not only by risk and change but also by high pressure to deliver successful outcomes. The book is uniquely geared to the needs of students in the final stages of their qualifying course, professionals returning to study, or those simply wishing to deepen their professional understanding. It is distinguished by:- Its coherent and thoughtful coverage of practice situations involving complexity, tension and uncertainty- Its focus on how social work can contribute by integrating the perspectives of service users, carers, other professionals and the wider agency context- Its discussion of a range of management skills, which are presented as versatile tools for all practitioners- Its extended exploration of social work research, as an important but widely debated professional resource.
