Summary:
"Recording can be a chore. But it can also be a positive tool, encouraging reflection as well as focusing on accountability and information storage and sharing.

   schema:description "Recording is regarded by most social workers as a necessary evil. The research from which this book arises found that recording is a highly complex and demanding aspect of professional practice. Why has such a critical activity received so little attention, despite the concerns over social work records identified with successive inquiries into tragic deaths? This highly topical book explores the often conflicting demands on social workers as they record information on the case files, and will stimulate a long overdue debate as to how to achieve more effective recording in social work. --Book Jacket."@en ;
