The Writer's Handbook: A Guide for Social Workers is a writing reference for social work majors and graduate students. Specific to social work, the text contains chapters on documenting in the field, research, and APA style citation and formatting. In addition, learners have access to full chapters on principles of grammar (such as verbs, pronouns, and parallel structure), punctuation (commas, semicolons, colons, quotation marks, and so on), and writing style (active voice, conciseness). The text is designed to help writers at all levels bring the quality of their work to higher levels by reviewing principles followed by practice. Since APA style is required for social work study, a special effort has been make to present a full chapter on APA style as well as integrate APA requirements in formatting and style throughout the text. The text is reader friendly, contains keys to all exercises at the back of the book, and gives learners access to interactive activities at the book's website.
