Action learning in social work
Part of the Post-qualifying social work practice guides series
Throughout their careers, social work students and practitioners need to demonstrate an understanding of critical and reflective practice.
The Professional Capabilities Framework sets out how newly-qualified social workers can achieve this, and become 'critical practitioners' who are able to make decisions in fast-moving situations.
This book is a complete guide for those practitioners who wish to engage with action learning as a way of developing critically reflective practice.
The authors use Action Learning to explore fundamental aspects of good social work including for example person centred and anti-oppressive practice.
The notions of social and emotional intelligence and being critically reflective are also explored in the context of action learning.
This book is practical, skills-based and essential reading for all social workers who wish to extend their understanding and knowledge.
