This book provides a hands-on guide to the most common methods of helping social work service users and of dealing with some difficult situations. The authors set each method in its historical and theoretical context before explaining the method itself in easy to understand language. Fully-revised to include new material on value-based practice and direct links to the new Professional Capabilities Framework for Social Work, this second edition is essential reading for all social work students.
