Thank you very much for the text Positive Social Work Practice. I teach on a range of modules in health and social care courses at Foundation and Degree Level. I am a registered social worker and have been qualified for 30 years. I left the social work teaching team here after 8 years, but have found that I have been able to use my social work knowledge to very good purpose in a course that teaches people who are undertaking degrees and may chose to go into social care management, social work, teaching or nursing. This 'ramble' I share with you as I feel this text will be very helpful to the students on the course I teach. It has a large cohort each year. Students undertake placements and are prepared for them through teaching. I am very pleased to tell you that your text will be one recommended as critical reading . The book is very accessible, it does not shirk difficult discussions or case examples, such as agile working or home working. There is a clear, positive and hopeful voice. I am studying for a DBA( a Doctorate by taught and research route for business and care professionals) with the theme of Empathy and Social Work and your text is an interesting reflection of changing times upon which I can draw.-- Gavin Millar, Anglia Ruskin University
