This book is an original way to introduce students and practitioners to reflective learning and knowledge-based practice, both of which are key aspects of a social worker's role. Readers will consider the impact of social work practice from a life course perspective by using extracts from topical research, theory, academic texts and national strategy and policy. Numerous activities prompt personal reflection and help readers to develop skills in critical analysis, as well as providing ways in which they can evidence the impact this learning has on their professional development.
