How do students learn from fieldwork experiences? How can supervisors assist students doing fieldwork?
Fieldwork in the Human Services is a practical guide for educators and managers involved in supervising field education. Drawing on the experience of academics, clinicians and educators from Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the UK, this collection explores how to make the most of the fieldwork experience.
With learning as the central theme, contributors examine the practical application of a range of learning theories and models of supervision. Management issues are also considered, as are working with cultural difference and legal and ethical aspects.
Fieldwork in the Human Services will be welcomed by anyone involved in field education in social work, health, community work, education, welfare and related fields.
