Recognising the centrality of the practice placement in preparing students to become effective social workers, this book offers practical guidance to both students and their practice teachers regarding how to enhance learning on placement in social work agencies. Distinguished by the coherence of its approach, the book presents an integrated approach to practice teaching with a clear methodological focus, practical help for practitioners and discussion of principles for students.
