Book Description

1 May 2012 Social Work Pocketbooks
“This informative and easy to follow book will be useful in supporting Social Care professionals to develop this core social work skill in producing factual, structured, effective and well presented reports for various social needs and client groups. [It] guides the report writer to produce reports that are anti discriminatory, concise, open, honest and written in plain English facilitating better understanding of the report for both the person the report is about and the readers of the report.”
Veronica Clifton, Social Worker and Practice Teacher

“This book is grounded in practice and provides clear guidance on a range of elements which need to be in place in order to produce effective reports ... It provides a framework and aide - memoir which is developed and reinforced by the use of good practice points and check lists ... It should meet the needs of a wide audience and can be used in a variety of settings.”
Joe Szymkowiak, Registered Social Worker

“This pocket guide is brimming with good practice points and checklists, points of law, reminders, hints, report templates and much, much more to guide social workers in report writing. It also outlines the specific features which are required of reports in specific situations such as core assessments, safeguarding or detentions under the Mental Health Act ... This guide is highly recommended as a tool for all students and practitioners.”
Dr Martin Webber, Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London, UK

Report writing is a key social work skill, and one in which many practitioners receive very little formal training and preparation. This practical book provides key information, hints and tips to help you to develop your report writing style and to consider best practice in your written communication.

Part of a new Social Work Pocketbooks series, this easy to use guide supports social workers at all levels. The book contains:

  • A range of report templates
  • Examples of good practice in report writing
  • Specialist chapters covering legal, policy and assessment situations
  • Checklists to provide reminders of content and style requirements
Understanding the audience and purpose of your report writing is also a key consideration and this book explores:
  • Which information to include
  • Formulating evidence into logical and clear recommendations
  • User involvement in the process and the role of consent
Considering a range of situations, practice dilemmas and service user groups, this book will assist you in producing professional, informative and good quality reports.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really useful 18 Oct 2012
By bob
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is really useful it was recommended by one of my lecturers - and is small enough to take on the train and read on the way to uni.

It was filled with useful tips, and was easily accessible even when half awake in the morning.

The only issue is the references to the GSCC and that the type is set so far into the spine it can be difficult to read some pages. It does acknowledge the HPC as the new body but obviously was already on it's way to being published and this was not changed to reflect the way things now stand.
