Leaving university and entering the world of Social Work can be quite a daunting experience for many students, though also exciting and challenging. This new publication will help the Newly Qualified Social Worker to understand their role within the context of a newly emerging and developing Social Work service. It will ensure that they are equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to do the job as best they can. 'Positive Social Work' is packed with information and resources to enable the NQSW to work in a professional manner, to protect themselves from the pressures of the role and to ensure they know where to look for support. This book will also assist them with ongoing professional development by giving them tools they can adapt for their own area of Social Work. All Chapters are directly linked to the new Professional Capabilities Framework. This book provides a unique tool designed to support the NQSW's journey through the Assessed Supported Year in Employment and is full of case studies and exercises designed to help understanding and develop positive habits which will enhance their career.

About the Author:

Julie began working in residential care in 1992, working within children's disability before moving to mainstream settings. Having qualified in 1999 she then moved to field Social Work and has worked in a variety of settings including child protection, adoption, looked after children and also had a brief spell working overseas. Julie worked her way through the ranks from Social Worker to Team Manager and has also spent some time working in a hospital setting with adults with complex health and permanent conditions. Julie has mentored Social Workers and delivers training with Angie and is always looking for new learning experiences. Angie began working in residential care with children in 1982 and qualified as a SW in 1987. Having moved to work in the voluntary sector, she returned to statutory social work in 2002, where she worked predominantly with children, young people and families. Following five years as an agency SW, she left full time practice in 2010 to work on other projects and now combines part time work as a Volunteer Coordinator with Practice Educating, coaching and training and is always on the lookout for interesting ventures to become involved in.

Review:

Thank you very much for the text Positive Social Work Practice. I teach on a range of modules in health and social care courses at Foundation and Degree Level. I am a registered social worker and have been qualified for 30 years. I left the social work teaching team here after 8 years, but have found that I have been able to use my social work knowledge to very good purpose in a course that teaches people who are undertaking degrees and may chose to go into social care management, social work, teaching or nursing. This 'ramble' I share with you as I feel this text will be very helpful to the students on the course I teach. It has a large cohort each year. Students undertake placements and are prepared for them through teaching. I am very pleased to tell you that your text will be one recommended as critical reading . The book is very accessible, it does not shirk difficult discussions or case examples, such as agile working or home working. There is a clear, positive and hopeful voice. I am studying for a DBA( a Doctorate by taught and research route for business and care professionals) with the theme of Empathy and Social Work and your text is an interesting reflection of changing times upon which I can draw. -- Gavin Millar, Anglia Ruskin University
