Description

What do some of the greatest minds like Warren Buffet, Bill Gates and Oprah Winfrey do? They read, a lot. Remember, learning does not end at school or university. At Perlego (The Spotify for Books) we have created an online learning platform which fosters continuous lifelong learning and self-development. By offering unlimited access to more than 250,000 books that range from business to engineering and technology you can freely explore academic, self-development and non-fiction best-sellers. With our mobile app, you can read and highlight anything, anywhere at anytime.

Psychology is an important part of the social work syllabus, usually studied as a separate module in the first year, but also integrated within the academic curriculum. This fully updated edition will help students understand the concepts of psychology and apply them to their own practice. It shows that, for social workers, it is important for psychology to be studied in the contexts of social care, as it offers potential explanations of complex aspects of human behaviour and development. An overview of the key psychological approaches is given and the author demonstrates how these can be applied to social work practice.
