Assessment is a crucial social work task. Yet there is so much to consider that it can sometimes feel overwhelming. This book gives you structured, practical guidance on how to approach this vital professional skill. In a clear and accessible style, the authors provide both the theory behind assessment as well as helpful practice examples. At the heart of this authoritative book is a set of theoretical maps to guide social workers' thinking and decision-making when undertaking assessment. Highlights of this fourth edition are: ■ insights into the kind of high-quality collaborative assessment that is most likely to lead to effective interventions ■ chapters discussing the specific challenges of assessment in children's and adult services ■ careful analysis of the latest legislation and government guidance ■ engaging features such as case studies, questions to challenge your perceptions, and thinking points to make you consider your own experience in the workplace. This fully revised edition of a tried-and-tested text gives social work students and practitioners alike a coherent and reliable guide to best practice.
