Assessment, Risk and Decision Making in Social Work Summary

Assessment, Risk and Decision Making in Social Work: An Introduction by Campbell Killick

As practising social workers, your students will need to be able to make sound judgments in complex contexts and when they are under pressure. This book covers the essential knowledge they will require to understand and develop skills in relation to professional judgement and decision making processes, including:

- the use of assessment tools;

- engagement in assessment and decision processes;

- the context of risk, complexity and uncertainty in practice;

- communication and management of risk within social care processes.

Assessment, Risk and Decision Making in Social Work Reviews

I would recommend this book to enable the reader to either gain a basic understanding of the social work task around assessment and risk, or as a refresher for experienced practitioners who may want to take stock and reevaluate their practice in the field of risk assessment and management. It would be a good aide memoir for practice teachers when preparing for supervision of a student social worker, and could be a good tool to use in developing practice discussions around risk, values and professional accountability and responsibility. -- Michael Stewart * Scottish Journal of Residential Child Care - Vol 19, No 3 *
