Chris Beckett''s new book on
assessment and intervention in social work practice covers the core
topics for qualifying social work students. This text provides a
thorough understanding of the issues and skills essential for
effective practice. Each of the nine chapters defines a key
concept, including Assessment; Intervention; Risk and Efficacy.
Case studies and ''practice questions'' throughout make the
connections between theory and practice explicit. Suggestions as to
further reading are made at the end of each chapter.
This important book is essential reading for undergraduate and
graduate social work students throughout all three years of their
training, but it will be particularly useful for students who are
on placement, or who are reflecting on their experiences on
placement. It is also a useful resource for practice teachers who
need a framework for discussing practice with students they
supervise on placement.
