This popular book provides readers with a structured way to review and reflect upon fieldwork experience. the paperback format with perforated pages makes it easy to remove and submit assignments. Best of all, this book really helps students to link classroom theory to actual practice experience within a social service agency and exposes them to the many facets of field work including social policy, the agency and community contexts of practice, legal and ethical considerations, cultural diversity and the evaluation of practice. This new edition has been thoroughly updated throughout and contains new material on social and economic justice.
