All social work students face decisions about where they will undertake the minimum 120 days of field placement required during their study, as well as which field of practice to work in upon graduation. This helpful book introduces students to five fields of practice in Aotearoa New Zealand. Students can watch in-depth interviews with practitioners about their field of practice, read text and view photographs and graphics relating to each domain. Based on the current policy and legislative climate in which social workers operate, it gives inspirational, up-to-date and unique insights into social work environments, including working with youth, youth justice, women's health, community faith-based work and adult mental health. Together, the book and the accompanying videos allow students to get a real feel for life as a social work graduate.
