Synopsis

Social Work in Education and Children's Services by Steve Krawczyk, Nigel Horner

In light of the profound changes confronting the Child Welfare landscape, social work practitioners are expected to understand both the current and anticipated inter-relationships between social work and education. A clear introduction to social work in an educational setting, this book supports students on the social work degree course and builds on the success of the Transforming Social Work Practice series, which is based on common learning principles.

Reviews

A very timely book, addressing many significant issues under [the] current changes (Senior Lecturer, University of Derby)
