Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Social workers often have to make difficult decisions that are affected by their emotions, values and the relationships they have built. The ability to explore and critically analyse your work can help you understand and manage your own emotional needs, as well as support you with improving your social work skills and ensuring anti-oppressive practice.

Offering an accessible and innovative guide to reflective practice, this book:

• Applies the principles of critical reflection to some of the most challenging aspects of the job; such as building relationships, undertaking assessments and making decisions about risk.

• Uses diary extracts, engaging case studies and reflective activities to provide a framework for applying reflection to your everyday practice.

Whether you are a student of social work or an experienced practitioner, this book will be your guide to understanding, developing and improving your social work practice.

Synopsis:

This book provides social workers with a framework for reflecting on their day-to-day practice. Using a social worker's diary as a starting point, it provides valuable insight in to how reflection enhances skills and how factors such as values and emotions can shape social work practice.
