About this book


This handbook is a practical and comprehensive guide to supervising social work students in their practice placements. It will be particularly useful to the new supervisor, but also has much to offer to those who are more experienced. Illustrated with numerous examples from present-day social work settings, the book provides a good account of the varied tasks involved in being a supervisor, as well as useful answers to the learning problems of students. It will meet the interests of supervisors in practical ways, as well as identifying the educational and professional principles on which sound supervision should be based.
