Partnership made painless
A joined-up guide to working together
By Ros Harrison, Geoffrey Mann, Michael Murphy, Alan Taylor and Neil Thompson
"Until now there has been no book that sought to give practitioners or managers explicit guidance in how to make partnerships work. This volume seeks to fill that gap& it does so admirably& an accessible 'how-to-do-it' approach& the practical experience of the authors in establishing and nurturing partnerships does give the book the feel of lived reality& clear and succinct." Vista. It "is forthright about the fact that it may, at times, be more difficult to work in partnership than to continue in splendid isolation, but it also remains unequivocal in its belief that partnership working ultimately results in better outcomes for both clients and staff. By using examples from a wide range of work situations the book succeeds in drawing out those themes - and identifying those skills - which are common to all partnership work." ACT Bulletin. "How refreshing to read a book that goes beyond the rhetoric and addresses some of the problems which can accompany it& will be of practical help." Community Care.
