Social Work Practice
This is an excellent supplementary text to a third year module that covers international social work perspectives. I enjoyed the way the book linked similarities to social work practice in England in Wales in this field, but also clearly drawing out the distinctive differences. Students may well want to use Scotland for their summative assignment and this text would be a good starting point.
This provides not only useful information for comparison of child protection systems and procedures, but also some succinct summaries of theoretical perspectives.
Useful text for students in the Uk to read and refer to regarding differing practices.
An interesting supplement for students in Wales to understand how the Welsh system compares to other systems.
