Abstract

Based on original research, this book offers students an insight into the nature and challenges of writing in social work practice, enabling them to improve their writing skills. It explores the ways in which both students and qualified social workers can be more effective in their writing through an awareness of purpose, context and audience. It makes explicit the connections and differences between learning to write in university and communicating through writing in practice, and explores the impact that new technologies have on academic and professional writing.
