Summary Annotation Throughout their careers, social work students and practitioners need to demonstrate an understanding of critical and reflective practice. The Professional Capabilities Framework sets out how newly-qualified social workers can achieve this, and become 'critical practitioners' who are able to make decisions in fast-moving situations. This book is a complete guide for those practitioners who wish to engage with action learning as a way ofdeveloping critically reflective practice. The authors use ActionLearning to explore fundamental aspects of good social work including for example person centred and anti-oppressive practice.
