As a social worker, you could work in a variety of different organisations, each with their own purpose, culture and structure. Understanding and examining the complex issues involved in the management and organisational context of social work practice is crucial for practitioners and managers.
This book helps you to develop strategies for ethical, reflective and relational practice, covers key themes including leadership, supervision, risk and decision making and emphasises the importance of active participation for positive change. Thoroughly updated, and with new Practice Examples demonstrating the relationship between theory and practice, this is essential reading for both undergraduate and postgraduate students of social work, as well as practising social workers.
