* Case studies to help reinforce learning and relate discussions of models and theories directly to social work practice.
* Learning activities to help students check their progress and explore areas in greater depth.
* Summaries of contemporary research, providing students with up-to-date evidence for best practice and suggestions for further reading. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product description
Top customer reviews
There are lots of case studies which bring theories into the context of 'real life'. It also has handy research summaries and further reading suggestions should you want to learn more about a particular aspect of the subject.
This is a must-have buy!
It is very basic though which is fine for general understanding of the theory but if a deeper understanding is required I don't recommend it.
