Synopsis

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 the 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.



Drawing on both research and examples from practice, Effective writing for social work is a valuable tool for students, educators, practitioners and managers to critically examine ways in which writing could better support best practice in social work.

Lucy Rai is Associate Dean of Teaching and Learning in the faculty of Health and Social Care at The Open University. She is a qualified social worker and has worked in both children's and adults services. Lucy has been teaching at The Open University since 2001 and her research has focused on student and professional writing in social work.
