This textbook, aimed at students in the field of social work practice, is designed to help them to understand the importance of good writing and to give them the tools they need to write well. It explores the ways in which both students and practicing social workers can be more effective in their writing through an awareness of the purpose, context, and audience for their work. It also highlights the differences between classroom writing assignments and workplace writing as well as the effects that new technologies have had on both academic and professional writing.
Hilary Burgess | University of Bristol

Paul Evans | head of workforce development, Cambridgeshire County Council
“A really welcome tool in enabling social workers and their managers to understand and appreciate the importance of good case recording and how to actually achieve it.”
