Social Work Degree Books Advice Plz!!!Watch
I am starting my social work degree in september and wondered if anyone could advise me on what books I'm likely to need? Would rather get them now whilst I have a tiny bit of money than wait til september when I'm expecting to be totally skint!
If anyone has a book / reading list or can just recommend decent books I would really appreciate it.
Ones I used a lot were:
Law for Social Workers by Brayne and Carr
Community Care and the Law by Mandelson
Social Work Practice by Coulshed and Orme
Social Work Skills by Trevithick
Modern Social Work Theory by Payne
Social Work Models, Methods and Theories by Stepney and Ford
The Blackwell Companion to Social Work is a good general introduction
A Brief Introduction to Social Work Theory - David Howe
Anti-Discriminatory Practice - Neil Thompson
Social Work Law - Alison Brammer
Children Act Handbook - Hershman & McFarlane
Social Work: Themes, Issues & Critical Debates - Adams, Dominelli & Payne
Anything from the Learning Matters series
Again, I'd listen to Mandy and wait until you get a reading list from your university, as you might take different modules in different years or have different recommended texts, and it'd be an expensive mistake to buy our recommendations if they're not what your uni works from.
