An Introduction to Applying Social Work Theories and Methods has established itself as a leading introduction to the most commonly used theories and methods in social work practice. Now in its second edition, the book explores the concepts of a 'theory' and a 'method', the difference between the two and the ways in which they are connected. Assuming little to no prior knowledge, each chapter explores a single theory or method in depth and uses a variety of interactive tools to encourage you to explore your own thoughts and beliefs. Step-by-step illustrations show how to apply the theory or method to a social work case example, and exercises, questions, diagrams, tables and figures are all used to stimulate thought and encourage further learning. New to this edition: New chapter on Community Work provides a step-by-step approach to community work that social workers can adapt to best fit their practice. New chapter on Groupwork provides an overview of the rationale for groupwork, the types of groups social workers may encounter in their practice, group processes and the practicalities in planning, running and ending a group. Expanded chapter on motivational interviewing to include new material on change talk and sustain talk, the communication skills needed when using this technique, and the processes of motivational interviewing New case studies exploring areas of growing priority in practice such as dementia Fully revised and updated throughout to incorporate the latest researchThis is a practical and essential guide for all social work students on undergraduate and postgraduate courses for use both in the classroom and while on placement. Newly qualified social workers and practitioners will also find this a handy and accessible reference text to keep with them throughout their careers. Contributor: David Kondrat
