Since launching in 2003, Transforming Social Work Practice has become the market-leading series for social work students. Now, in order to reflect the recent and ongoing changes to social work education, this series is being improved even further. These books now have a greater emphasis on current thinking and policy, and include more opportunities for students to reflect on their own practice and their own learning. Social work students and practitioners must write for a wide range of audiences including peer groups, management and university lecturers as well as service users and carers. They must also learn to write well in a range of contexts that include academic assignments, exams and presentations, application forms, practice portfolios and care plans. This concise title is written specifically to help students and practitioners hone their techniques and develop their skills when it comes to writing in a clear, accessible and, above all, rigorous manner, there are sections on good essay writing and how to construct an argument, referencing and plagiarism, reflective and critical writing as well as sections on writing to values requirements and participative practice. More than just another study skills book, Effective Writing Skills for Social Work Students, is focused on real, day-to-day practice issues and the complex academic demands faced by social work students and practitioners.
