This practical guide offers students, social work practitioners, and practice assessors a holistic understanding of how to make a difference with social work. Written from an experiential learning perspective, it not only surveys current ideas and methods of social work but provides realistic ways to implement them. In doing so, it utilizes a robust, problem-based learning design that will enable readers to make sense of their practice in relation to the standard knowledge, skills, and values of social work in community contexts.

Peter Beresford, Brunel University
“The essence of good social work is the 'social'—seeing, relating to, and supporting people in context. This book is key to help making that happen. Exploring the theory, practice, values and future of social work in the community, it's invaluable for reconnecting social workers with good practice.”
