Counselling Skills for Social Work free pdf Praise for the first edition: "The content of the book is excellent...The strength lies in its detailed application of ideas to practice. The use of the case material to illustrate application is excellent and works well". (Helen Cosis-Brown, University of Middlesex). This new edition of "Counselling Skills for Social Work" argues that good counselling skills are at the heart of effective social work practice. Building on the success of the first edition, this core textbook brings a range of therapeutic models, with their theoretical underpinnings and skills, directly into a social work context. By looking at how the underlying theory can be applied to professional practice, chapters identify the key skills which can be employed for the most effective social work intervention. Key features of the book include: a practical skills-based approach- a focus on service-user experiences and arrange of case-studies drawn from a variety of 'real-life' settings- a new chapter dedicated to counselling young people- chapter content that is linked to the most recent NOS and GSCC guidelines structuring training and practice- and, end-of-chapter Reflective Questions and Tips for Practice summarising the key theoretical concepts and their applications. Written in a lively and engaging style, this updated new edition will be an invaluable text for undergraduate students in social work. It will also be useful for qualified practitioners to enhance understanding of communication and the process of change through the medium of counselling skills.
