A comprehensive guide to social work praxis, this book provides a clear conceptual understanding of fieldwork supervision in India. It elaborates on the dynamic components of fieldwork instruction – the methodologies and effective strategies, the supervisor–student–agency triad, challenges and the future.

The volume underlines the importance of student mentoring and the imperative need to develop creative and competent strategies to make fieldwork education more responsive and effective. It also emphasises the need for the inclusion of social justice-oriented perspectives and approaches in fieldwork training in India. Instructive and anecdotal, the chapters in this volume reflect on the challenges which students and supervisors face on a regular basis in different environments while dealing with critical circumstances. The focus of the book is to delineate strategies and approaches which promote skill building and the ability in students to understand sociocultural contexts of the field and engage with them effectively.

This volume will be an essential resource for social work educators, field practitioners and students of social work, law, public policy, sociology and social entrepreneurship.
