Communication and Interpersonal Skills in Social Work by Juliet Koprowska

The social work degree requires all students to learn communication skills with children, adults and those with communication difficulties, and to have these skills assessed. Learning for practice is at the centre of the degree, and communication skills constitute a core area of practice. The emphasis of the book is not on any particular 'right way' to communicate, but on the need to be aware, flexible and responsive so that communication is suited to the service user, the context and the purpose of the work.
