Promotional Information

The beauty of this book is that it focuses on the core, cornerstone aspects of social work which tend to remain constant and consistent. The 'tweaks' of the content and updating of references are beneficial and helpful, as is the expansion of the Guides to further learning, and the inclusion of more online resources and exercises.' Adrian Black, Associate Tutor, University of East Anglia, UK 'Neil Thompson has an extremely accessible style. This text will not intimidate students, even those who may struggle to grasp more complex ideas. It is very easy to read and the chapters are constructed in a manner that students can dip in and out.' Lisa Revell, Lecturer in Social Work, University of Hull, UK 'What I would say about the book as a strength is its straightforward and accessible style which allows Social Work student readers to quickly identify the main themes of early years learning and ease themselves in to what Thompson emphasises is a complex and highly professional activity.' Mike Shepherd, Lecturer, Robert Gordon University, UK
