Críticas:

I have a degree in Criminology and I am currently in my first year studying Social Work. As I have previously studied at degree level, I understand the importance of a good core book that gives you a basic understanding of the significant areas in that field. For me Lishman et al has encapsulated the necessary information and identifies key aspects that I can read further into.

Core theories and ideologies run throughout the book, this is supported by exercises and case studies. I personally found the case studies really useful as it is a good way of applying what you have learnt to an unfamiliar situation. This ensures you have an understanding of what you have just learnt and if you are unsure you are encouraged to read further around the subject. What is great about this book is it advises where to go for further reading to underpin your learning.

Finally the companion website advertised in the book is very beneficial. It ensures immediate access to up to date information.  I have learnt that the Laws surround social work are ever evolving and it is important to be as up to date as possible. This is a perfect way to keep up to date, not just with law but with codes of practice and framework's.

All in all I believe this book is a vital part of anyone studying or wanting to learn about the core modules of being a social worker. This book has clarified certain aspects of social work and I find myself referring to it to confirm my understanding. (Ellie Morton)

[The book] gives the reader a clear understanding of the basic, but paramount, issues that need to be considered in each key area of social work practice. This will be invaluable not only for people who have started on courses but for people who are considering social work as a career. In an age where people constantly find it difficult to answer the question 'what is social work' this book goes a great way towards providing a firm foundation for making that clear. (Patricia Woolley)

Many students of Social Work will understandably want to buy one big book to support their studies, and this text is not only big, but also weighty and substantial. The book offers a solid grounding in the underpinning knowledge base of social sciences, law and ethics, before considering models of assessment, intervention, evaluation and critical reflexivity. Most importantly, at this time, this is a welcome publication that acknowledges Social Work to be about relationships and politics and policy. (Nigel Horner)

This book is a comprehensive introduction. It encompasses the knowledge and processes needed by contemporary social workers practising throughout the UK, and relevant far beyond. Led by some of the foremost Scottish social work academics it is a jewel in the discipline’s literary crown!
(Professor Jonathan Parker)
