Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I teach an MSW course in writing skills for social workers and used this, along with another book, to teach the course. My students, without exception, found this book to be less useful than the other book - Social Work Documentation by Nancy Sidell. This book lacked the depth and level of detail that I was looking for, and students agreed that it provided only a surface-level review of the skills necessary to producing well-written documents. Would recommend the book by Sidell or Social Work Records by Kagle and Koppels as an alternative.

This is an excellent resource for the social worker that writes. It is comprehensive, descriptive and useful. I recently wrote an article for a class and this book helped me organize the paper. Well worth the money.

This book was very well written-as it should be since it is a book on writing. It was an easy read and had great tips for writing as well as organization as a professional.
