Social Work Intervention Summary

Social Work Intervention by Trevor Lindsay

Social workers need to have a sound working knowledge of a range of ways of working with the people who use their services. They also need to be able to apply and integrate this knowledge in practice, to critically evaluate different methods and to choose the most effective in any particular set of circumstances. This book provides a hands-on guide to the most common methods of helping social work service users and to dealing with some difficult situations.
