Summary

Skills for Human Service Practice: Working with Individuals, Groups and Communities, 2e covers all the skills and theoretical frameworks that beginning practitioners and students in Human Services need. It encourages a critical reflective perspective to help students to mindfully reflect on their practice, in order to help them deal with the frustrations and difficulties that they will encounter in their practice. It lays out the theory and framework and then looks at specific skill sets in light of the frameworks and theories mentioned in the first half of the book. The two new chapters, Research skills for Practitioners and Becoming and Being a Professional Practitioner, extend the students and help them make the transition from learning to practice.
