Are you looking to understand more about social pedagogy? Wanting to see how you can incorporate these approaches into your practice?

Ali Gardner and Lowis Charfe introduce you to this exciting new approach to UK social work practice that has been shaping care services in Europe for decades.  It is a holistic approach that requires an absolute commitment to employing your heard, heart, and hand in creatively working alongside individuals to support the process of change at an individual, communal, and societal level.

-        The authors outline the key concepts, philosophy, and history of social pedagogy to ground you in the theory

-        Exercises help you to reflect on how to incorporate this new philosophy into your work
