Product description

"What a sensible book, a book born of much wisdom and practical experience. Pamela Trevithick takes the reader on a wonderfully clear but thorough journey of social work's knowledge, skills and values in which theories are elegantly put into practice. The whole enterprise is reassuringly held together by a strong commitment to organised thinking and the value of the social work relationship. For those who want to sharpen their ideas while keeping their practical feet firmly on the ground, this is the book for you."Professor David Howe, University of East Anglia, UK"This new edition is an excellent resource for practitioners, students and indeed managers in social work and social care who are committed to effective practice and service delivery ...
