Overview

This practical guide offers students, social work practitioners, and practice assessors a holistic understanding of how to make a difference with social work. Written from an experiential learning perspective, it not only surveys current ideas and methods of social work but provides realistic ways to implement them. In doing so, it utilizes a robust, problem-based learning design that will enable readers to make sense of their practice in relation to the standard knowledge, skills, and values of social work in community contexts.

Barbra Teater is a senior lecturer in social work at the University of Bristol and the author of An Introduction to Applying Social Work Theories and Methods. Mark Baldwin is a senior lecturer in social work at the University of Bath and the coauthor of Social Work, Critical Reflection and the Learning Organisation
