Overview

Practice teaching is an essential component of social work training, yet very little is written about the experience of practice teaching. In this authoritative book, practitioners and academics draw upon their experience of working with social work students to discuss and explore the complex issues that arise in practice teaching. The fundamental challenges related to the organizational context of social work, the role of the practice teacher as the pivot between theory and practice and the need to ensure the development of a sound value base in all social work students are all explored in depth. The contributors demonstrate how they have managed to create stimulating and rewarding learning opportunities for their students by holding on to the essential skills and values of effective social work in the face of continuous organizational re-structuring, resource constraints and an uncertain future.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
"Practice teaching" is the term commonly used in Britain for teaching the practice of social work. The 16 articles here may have some universal applicability for American social work educators as well. They advise social work educators on how to encourage sensitivity with regard to issues of race, sex, sexual orientation, and disability, among other topics. But most of the articles, such as those on law and the probation system, seem to be relevant exclusively to the British social work system. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
