This helps students to get a feel for the reality of how social workers use different theories and perspectives in practice.
This book identifies and discusses the use of theory in social work and the main theories which can be helpful in understanding behaviour and promoting positive change.
A useful introduction to the complex area of theory and practice
Very important text for students on qualifying courses
Excellent: language / content pitched at just the right level and an interesting read.
Good readable text on theory, providing useful theoretical underpinning for the student out on practice placement
A good basic introduction to the concept of theories. Particularly useful for those students who are still daunted by the significance and the application of recognised practices in daily practicum experiences. Less useful for those students with a firmer grasp of theoretical approaches who are looking for detailed information on the strengths and deficits of a specific approach.
This is a useful text for all three levels of the BA SocialWork and for the Post qualifyuing SW course with Adults. Gives a good reminder and summary of theories
A good book for students to follow. Especially students who have problems with understanding application.
Will be a valuable suggestion for our third year students in thie final year
I think this book is an exceptional book in that gives a very good introduction to social work theory and is very user-friendly. therefore I decided to have it as essential reading on my course of Methods in Social Work.
