The Post-Qualifying Handbook for Social Workers (Google eBook)
Jessica Kingsley Publishers, Jul 15, 2007 - Social Science - 296 pages
This handbook provides guidance for all practising social work professionals, and the staff who support them, on the post-qualifying (PQ) framework for social workers. The book introduces the framework and outlines how post-qualification accreditation and professional registration affect social workers. Covering the theory and practice of social work, the Handbook provides a set of tools and resources that enable social workers to develop their practice while coping with the demands of operational duties. The book looks at working with a range of service user groups such as children, people with learning disabilities and young offenders, as well as examining common issues that social workers may encounter, such as inter-agency work, and issues such as loss and participation. Tackling the increased post-qualification training necessitated by the new framework, this handbook contains resources and materials to help practitioners continue their own professional development. This definitive guide is an invaluable resource for all practising qualified social workers, students and trainers, and educators. Consultant editor: Robert Adams is Professor of Social Work in the School of Health and Social Care at the University of Teesside, UK.
