Synopsis

Studying for your Social Work Degree by Hilary Walker

This fully-revised new edition looks at how students can make the most from their time studying on the social work degree. Focusing on each of the three years of study, the author skilfully unpicks the critical thinking, reflection and study skills essential for the completion of the degree. There are sections on autonomous learning, writing academically, communication skills and developing critical analysis and argument. This second edition has more information on how students learn, what makes for excellence in social work research, and how students can successfully integrate their skills with their practice.

Reviews

I consider this an excellent book for students throughout their degree studies - also for practice teachers/educators to use with students; and indeed for their own CPD. (Lecturer, Anglia Ruskin University)
