Synopses & Reviews
The Social Workers' Toolbox aims to bring order to the diversity of tools which is so characteristic of social work: Assessment-tools, Practice-tools and Outcome-measurement-tools. The tools described in this Toolbox can be directly put into practice and adapted to the social workers personalised approach with their individual clients and their environments. The underlying meta-theory for Sustainable Multi-Method Social Work is the Human Needs & Human Rights Theory . This theory defines social work practice in terms of the partnership between social worker and client and is aimed at enhancing quality of life through systematically and sustainably addressing human needs and human rights. The multi-method model promotes the flexible combination of well-written and evidence- and practice-based tools.
Packed full of useful checklists it is an ideal reading for both the inexperienced and the more practiced social worker. The book provides a solid basis through the use of numerous practical examples. For the more experienced social worker it offers a substantial resource and the means to legitimise a chosen course of action and social work intervention. Schools of social work will be able to use the book as an easily accessible resource for social work assessments, interventions and quality social work management.
