Social workers are required to communicate in writing for a range of purposes, and to write effectively for a range of audiences. This new edition of the best-selling "Writing Skills for Social Workers" aims to raise the profile of writing skills in social work practice, and to enhance social workers' written communication skills. The book adopts a logical progression, and each chapter identifies and contextualises the practical skills needed at specific points in training and practice. Overall it will encourage the development of writing skills and techniques which will stand the reader in good stead throughout their professional career. The updated new edition includes: training in core professional writing tasks, particularly case-notes, report and proposal writing; guidance in advanced writing skills, such as writing literature reviews, journal articles, conference papers and funding applications; a discussion of ethical issues and values; and, advice on using these skills in the publication of research. Written in a lively style, the authors have included reflective exercises, top tips for effective writing and guidelines for further reading. The chapters are also linked to the professional standards that structure training, practice and continuing professional development. It will therefore be an essential study guide for all students, practitioners and managers in social work settings.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best option March 26 2013
By Reader, Esq. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I teach an MSW course in writing skills for social workers and used this, along with another book, to teach the course. My students, without exception, found this book to be less useful than the other book - Social Work Documentation by Nancy Sidell. This book lacked the depth and level of detail that I was looking for, and students agreed that it provided only a surface-level review of the skills necessary to producing well-written documents. Would recommend the book by Sidell or Social Work Records by Kagle and Koppels as an alternative.

By Loretta L. Lambert - Published on Amazon.com
This is an excellent resource for the social worker that writes. It is comprehensive, descriptive and useful. I recently wrote an article for a class and this book helped me organize the paper. Well worth the money.
