Social Work Practice Summary

Social Work Practice: Assessment, Planning, Intervention and Review by Jonathan Parker

This bestselling book takes the student step-by-step through the core processes of social work. It introduces four essential elements (assessment, planning intervention and review) in a clear manner, and is structured in a chronological way that is easy to understand yet holistic in approach. The authors use Assessment as a lynchpin for the book and use various assessment tools (some of which they have developed themselves) to illustrate the links between theory and practice. An essential introduction to the fundamental principles of social work practice, this title has been fully-revised to link directly to the Professional Capabilities Framework for Social Work.

Key updates:
  • New Material on Personalisation Agenda
  • Greater emphasis on social work in the community
  • More research material on working with children
  • Updated case studies throughout

    Part of the Transforming Social Work Practice series. All books in the series are affordable, mapped to the Social Work Curriculum, practical with clear links between theory & practice and written to the Professional Capabilities Framework.
