You must draw content from academic books and articles to inform this assignment. Do not just rely on websites or reproduce your lecture notes. Reference the literature accurately in your essay and provide a correctly compiled list of references at the end.

Please use at least 1.5 line spacing (so that the lines are not too close together, to make room for the marker’s comments).

3. Discuss some dilemmas and challenges social workers may face in their work

There are many potential dilemmas and challenges you could discuss – including those relating to the difficult nature of the work social workers do and the decisions they need to make; conflicts within and between the roles social workers undertake; value conflicts; and external developments and factors in the social, economic and political context that may have an impact on social work practice. You may find or think of other aspects too.

As with the other 2 essay titles you will not be able to focus on everything that is relevant so will need to select several aspects to focus on in more detail (and you can indicate that you are aware of other aspects).

Some useful sources:

· Thompson, N. (2015) Understanding Social Work: Preparing for Practice, 4th Edn London: Palgrave – discusses some challenges in chapter 7, and also parts of chapter 1.

· Doel (2012) Social Work: the basics London: Routledge – chapter 2, parts of chapter 3, and also p187-8. (a link to the e-book is on Moodle for week 3)

· The Munro Review.

· Moriarty et al (2015) Literature review of roles and issues within the social work profession in England (on Moodle, top section)

· Asquith et al (2005) The Role of the SW in the 21st century

· Jones (2014) article on Moodle for week 2 – p485-490

· Wilson, K., Ruch, G., Lymbery, M. and Cooper, A. (2011) Social Work: an introduction to contemporary practice. Harlow: Pearson. – parts of chapters 1, 2 and 3 (e-book in library)

· Lymbery & Postle (2007) Social Work: a Companion to Learning – chapter 23 ‘Value conflicts in practice’ (e-book in library)

· Hill, D., Agu, L. and Mercer, D. (2019) Exploring & locating social work: a Foundation for Practice – p.12 (this chapter is on Moodle for week 2)

· Payne (2007) What is professional social work – p12-21 (on 3 views of SW – regarding conflicting views of the purpose of social work) (see Moodle for week 6)

These are not the only relevant sources – many other sources also mention aspects of social work that are challenging or cause tensions and dilemmas, sometimes as brief points within other discussions.
