Book & CD. The ability to communicate well is a key marker of success in any environment, particularly in the world of work. This book is based on the widely used and respected "The Communication Handbook", written by a team of dedicated communicators and higher education specialists. Although the material has been substantially reworked and expanded, the focus remains on different forms of communication. The emphasis is placed on writing as a communication tool, particularly within the business environment. To support this, each chapter contains numerous exercises to enable the student to practise the skills learnt. An exciting addition to this text is the inclusion of online interactive exercises for students. The drilling exercises will enable students to reinforce the principles that have been explained and tested in the book, but in a fun, interactive and learning-enabled way. Lecturers can use the range of exercises to ensure that students are prepared before class and to reinforce the theories and techniques taught in the classroom. (The package is being piloted at a major South African university). The authors draw from substantial experience in the classroom and from close contact with business and industry. For that reason a student working through this book will be well prepared to communicate with success in the business environment.

"This is one of the best texts on this subject to emerge in recent years ù well written, scholarly with practice accounts that draw on Michelle Lefevre's direct experience. An essential text for all practitioners who encounter children and young people in their work."-Pam Trevithick, University of Bristol "This highly readable book makes a valuable contribution to an important but undeveloped area of practice. It combines theoretical perspectives on the dynamics of communication with children with opportunities for application, reflection and evaluation of one's own practice."-Karen Tanner, Senior Clinical Lecturer in Social Work, Tavistock Clinic Direct practice with children and young people has moved to centre stage in policy and practice within Children' Services. It is now recognised that if practitioners are to make a real difference to children and young people's lives, they must be able to engage, relate to, and communicate with children and young people themselves. Written by an experienced practitioner and educator, this timely textbook equips student social workers and other practitioners wishing to update their learning with the knowledge and capabilities needed for effective practice. Key skills, such as how to form relationships, understand non-verbal communication, break bad news and communicate within family groupings, are explored within the context of professional rotes and tasks such as assessment, involving young, people in decision-making and planning, and work with children in care. The book uses a problem-based learning;approach underpinned by theoretical frameworks, research findings and the voices of children and young people. Practice vignettes encourage readers to consider how these skills can be used within a range of practice contexts, tailoring communication to children and young people's specific needs and experiences.
