Two senior lecturers at the Hull School of Health and Social Care have written the second in a series of books which aims to help students get to grips with the university’s new Social Work degree.


Janet Walker and Karin Crawford are the co-authors of ‘Social Work with Older People’ published by Learning Matters, which is based upon the requirements of national occupational standards in social work and social care.


The book is part of an edited series aimed at first-year undergraduates who are studying for the new BSc (Hons) in Social Work this year.


The book looks at a range of issues relevant to social work with the elderly, including values and ethics, abuse and comparative perspectives from a European and international context.


It also highlights mental health issues and physical and learning disabilities.


“This is an interactive book with activities, research and case study examples that will assist undergraduate Social Work students with their studies,” said Karin.


“We work very well as a team and we’re hoping to write more books in the future,” said Janet.


The book was released last month and is available in book stores now.
