this book can be of help to anyone , at any level, within a social work or social care setting who wants to reflect on how they can effectively manage their own practice, and, where appropriate, manage that done by others amidst the various uncertainties and changes that are an integral part of contemporary social work and social care:

  • for practitioners and first time managers in social work and social care, it outlines way of successfully grappling with the challenges and demands of service delivery
  • for senior managers, researchers and policy makers, people with responsibility for shaping services. It provides insight into the day-to-day tasks of the workforce
  • for social work and social care students, it offers and introduction to the realities of practice
  • for lecturers and trainers, it provides detailed and invaluable teaching and resource material

The explanatory and reflective text is interspersed with dialogue and discussion, numerous activities and exercises. Combining practice and theory, it allows practitioners and managers to use strategies traditionally regarded as the province of management in order to enhance their role. these strategies encompass understanding the external work, how it impacts on organisation and, in turn, on their teams and on themselves as individuals.
