520 |a "This exciting new series of books from Learning Matters is aimed at busy social work practitioners who are looking to enhance their skills and extend their knowledge. Written from a practical point of view, they have clear links to both post-qualifying training including Continual Professional Development and the recommendations of the Social Work Reform Board. They are up-to-date, accessible and totally skills focused. Many newly-qualified social workers, as well as more experienced practitioners, feel apprehension at the prospect of writing formal reports. Writing may be a fundamental skill, but it is one that students and practitioners cannot afford to take for granted. Recent reviews undertaken by the Social Work Reform Board highlighted the need for clear and jargon-free reports, recording and written communication between professionals. This practical and accessible textbook presents the report writing process in a plan and straightforward way: from methods of collecting and presenting evidence, to drawing conclusions and writing up a final report. It is practice based, with clear links to practice outcomes and with examples drawn directly from social work." --From cover.
