Additional Book Details
This book explores the journey of becoming a social worker. It is based upon the experiences of social work students themselves and therefore provides a unique ′inside-out′ perspective. By showing that personal, professional and political elements are interwoven in students′ journeys, the author demonstrates that integrating these elements is vital to critical reflection and relationship-based social work. Content includes social work theory, therapeutic and risk-management interventions, emotional and ethical aspects of practice, political and cultural contexts of practice, and issues around supervision and assessment. The book also :
" includes introductions, real-life case study exercises, points for reflection, diagrams and tables, further reading and resources
" equips new students to reflect upon their own journeying and to learn more effectively from modules and placements
" provides case study material on all aspects of placements such as meeting Key Roles and value requirements
" covers career pathways for final year students, including guidance on dealing with job interviews and occupational stress
This is important reading across a range of modules and will be particularly valuable for new students and students on placement.
