If you know nothing about documentation this is a very good resource. I was looking for something more clinical and this wasn't it.

This review is from: Social Work Documentation: A Guide to Strengthening Your Case Recording (Paperback)
This comprehensive guide to documentation of social work services brings those of us who have not attended school in 2 or more decades into the present with references by new age theorists/clinicians. 12 Chapters including exercises at the end of each challange, refresh, teach, re-enforce the new methods of documenting client history in today's world of social science or psychology; coupled with local agency and governmental privacy requirements.
Entering a 13 month course in Addictions Certification after 30years out of the field, Nancy Sidell gave me the insight needed to communicate with reasonable proficiency. I bought the book after a preview of chapters and What Not to Document, in ch3, Laying the Foundation; is WHY. The Addictions course omitted necessary academic details needed to refresh a student like myself regarding the documentation process. Social Work Documentation gave descriptives, case recordings, agency formats useful in TODAY'S market. As a graduate practical nurse of 1989-90 and social scientist from the 1970's, documenting perspective is one of detail, clarity, subjective/objective assessment; Jargon,short-cuts okay. NOT anymore, valid explanations are given to appropriate vs inappropriate with non-judgemental notations written about clientele. Simple, concise, easy reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful book, August 27, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Social Work Documentation: A Guide to Strengthening Your Case Recording (Paperback)
I have been looking for a book that would help me to brush up on my documenting skills. This book is excellent because it explains things in a clear, concise manner. It goes over basic skills from grade school that you may have forgotten, while also focusing on specific strategies and tips that social workers must be aware of when documenting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book for a boring topic, June 19, 2013

This review is from: Social Work Documentation: A Guide to Strengthening Your Case Recording (Paperback)
No one really wants to read books like this. Always dry and difficult to care about unless you need an answer. But for the dry topic, it is a great book. It really lays out specific instructions for simple documentation and goes all the way up to pretty difficult items to document. It is a very clear book.

For the price both for those already in practice and those still in school can benefit from this book. It was not as in depth as I was hoping for however still a good source to inspire improved documentation.

This review is from: Social Work Documentation: A Guide to Strengthening Your Case Recording (Paperback)
This is a good guide to learning proper social work documentation. It is an easy read and it covers many different types of documentation that will be encountered in social work. It covers SOAP notes and people-first language among other key topics. This is a good book for a social work documentation course..
