Critical Practice in Social Work
on 12 February 2004
How many assignments have you tackled that ask you to critically review or evaluate practice? In my experience every single one. This book is the answer. It comprehensively covers all areas of Social Work Practice and invites the reader to grow professionally and personally as it offers an insight into the reflective skills needed to be an effective, transformingly critical practioner.
The book is helpfully structured into sections with easy to dip into chapters which is invaluable when looking for references. I especially liked the conclusions at the end of each chapter which give a clear synopsis of the contents. The list of contributors is an impressive who's who of contemporary, social work authors.
I'm glad I have added it to my bookshelf and consider it and its companion, Social Work: Themes, Issues and Critical Debates, essential reading.
