Social Work Intervention
- Trevor Lindsay - University of Ulster, UK
Social workers need to have a sound working knowledge of intervention as they are often balancing complex and sometime stressful circumstances with the individual needs of the service users. Also, as there are a wide range of social work interventions in current practice, students will benefit from knowing the advantages and disadvantages of each model and approach.
This book on effective social work intervention will help students apply and integrate this knowledge in practice, to critically evaluate different methods and to choose the most effective in any particular set of circumstances.
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.
A solid textbook on social work interventions.
Succinct, focused, comprehensive. Very reader and user-friendly. Perfect for my students on placement. Ideal really. Highly recommended.
This book gives a good and highly readable overview of a range of social work interventions. Following a case study related to one family the book uses an accessible format in order to explain the relevance of the varied methods under discussion at different parts of the social work process. The chapters written by the editor himself are perhaps its strongest with the overview of pyschosocial approaches and the argument for eclectic models well thought out.
This is on my essential list as it provides a good overview along with a couple of other key text.
Great book which introduces the notions of intervention and managing social work with service users.
Students find this an accessible resource which covers the key areas.
A very useful text for 'Theories and Methods' work. Suggested activities are particularly helpful, and practical in the Motivational Interviewing and SFBT chapters.
I had the previous version on loan from our library most of last year and am pleased the book has been revised to include the professional capabilities framework.
A very useful for Access to Social Science students intending to study for a degree in Social work.
