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 third edition are: a- insights into the kind of high-quality collaborative assessment that is most likely to lead to effective interventions a- chapters discussing the specific challenges of assessment in children's and adult services a- careful analysis of the latest legislation and government guidance a- 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.
