This book demonstrates how students can apply what they have learned to bridge the gap between theory and therapy as they begin their professional practice. The authors argue that the only way to be ready to face the demands of professional practice and life-long learning is to acquire a thorough understanding of the process and practice of clinical work. Fully revised, this second edition incorporates: new standards of service delivery and clinical competencies; registration of the profession under the Health Professions Council; collaborative working with shared client programmes and records; client-centred philosophy and social models of intervention. The authors emphasize the need to have a sound knowledge of what the profession is and who it encompasses; the awareness of the concepts that underpin decision-making, planning and choice of activities; and understanding of the philosophies that drive the choice of working practices.
