Helping Matters


by Vikki Williams, Mellisa Ogasawara, & Chris Horne

A4; 96 pp

Helping Matters contains 15 units on topics of great relevance to social workers in today’s world, including domestic violence, palliative care, mental health, worker exploitation, and refugees. 12 units introduce realistic situations where social workers may be called on to help foreigners in a professional setting, while 3 additional units allow students to review what they have learnt.

Each unit provides examples of simple yet useful English that allows effective communicate with foreign clients through vocabulary building, conversation practice, and role plays. Language is constantly recycled to help students learn phrases which can be used in any social work situation. Optional homework activities further reinforce learning.

By including issues that may be unfamiliar, Helping Matters encourages students to think more deeply about each situation and how they might help foreigners living in, or visiting, their own countries.
