Synopsis

Courtroom and Report Writing Skills for Social Workers by Clare Seymour, Richard B. Seymour

This new text will build on Courtroom Skills for Social Workers, by updating the legal and research content and strengthening the material on recording. There will also be additional contributions from service users and more practice examples, so as to make the book interesting and relevant for qualified social workers. It will assist social workers in meeting their CPD requirements for continuing registration and also offer a framework for short in-service training courses on court skills and recording, both areas in which social workers' performance comes under the scrutiny of other professionals.
