Communication and Interpersonal Skills in Social Work Reviews

The text covers many areas for consideration including brain development, human emotion, listening skills, reflection, methods of contact, working with groups, and 'groups' of individual experiences such as people who may be seeking asylum or people who have additional support and communication needs. Koprowska layers the different contexts and considerations of practice in an accessible and structured way. -- Louise Henry * Scottish Journal of Residential Child Care - Vol 19, No 3 *
