"Roger Hennessey has written a wonderfully warm and readable book about the importance of a relationship-based approach to social work practice. It is full of wisdom, humanity, and commonsense. The book is rich with examples and exercises. You know that you are in the hands of an expert whose skill, experience and understanding shine and reassure on every page." Professor David Howe, School of Social work and Psychology, University of East Anglia Human relationships lie at the very heart of social work practice, and an understanding of their importance is a crucial aspect of training. This book considers the place of relationships in current practice and explores the ways in which social workers can use relationship skills to achieve the best possible outcomes for their clients. The book also offers a unique discussion of the social worker's relationship with him or herself, arguing that self-awareness is as essential to good practice as an emotional understanding of the other. In doing so, the book promotes a new model for relationship-based social work, which emphasises the importance of both the inter- and intrapersonal. Opening with an introduction to the theoretical bases of the relationship-based model, the book then focuses on their direct application to social work practice. Key topics include: -Self-awareness and using oneself -Knowing the other person -Sustaining oneself -The ethics of relationship-based social work -Internalising knowledge, skills and values Using reflective exercises and case studies, the book encourages students to relate the tools they have learnt to practice scenarios from the real world, and is essential reading for all qualifying social work students.

The role of the social worker is to be found lying interestingly between society and the individuals they work with. As a result, social workers often feel pulled between the demands and challenges that each presents. The Compleat Social Worker explores the many debates the profession enjoys, including those between nature and nurture, care and control, thought and feeling, art and science, facts and values. In examining these ideas and the discussions they sponsor it celebrates social work's rich heritage of scientific thought and human relationships. It is out of these many divisions and disagreements and their resolution that the idea of the well-rounded, compleat social worker emerges. For those wishing to explore and enjoy, argue and acknowledge what it is to be a good social worker, this elegant book will prompt lively interest and debate.

Global social transformation calls for global social action. 2010 saw the launch of The Global Agenda for Social Work and Social Development, which detailed how social workers can strive to bring about increased social justice. The time is right to start to address and demonstrate the actions that might be required to develop and accomplish the Agenda - with regard to methods in practice and research, in social policy and social work education, and in a broader discourse of global commitment and cooperation. This informative and incisively written edited collection brings together experts from around the world to discuss issues which the social work and social welfare sectors face every day and to ensure a closer link between evidence-based practice, policy objectives and social development goals. Furthermore, this book reveals how these may affect the conditions of people and demonstrate how the social work and social development community can contribute to sustainable development.

'While emphasising caring for others, this book also place great importance on the practitioner caring for and developing themselves. Contemporary care environments place high demands upon students and practitioners of all disciplines. We want practitioners to do more than simply survive these environments, we want practitioners to thrive and feel enabled to lead themselves and others.' John Hurley and Paul Linsley, in the Preface Emotional intelligence is centred in self-awareness, empathy and leadership, as well as communication, relatedness and personal resilience. This book adopts a fresh approach to personal and professional development in healthcare by applying emotional intelligence to a range of clinical and educational contexts..This practical, user-friendly guide engages the reader on both an emotional and a cognitive level, offering an energising way for healthcare professionals to work more effectively as individuals and as part of a team. The activities provided are thought-provoking for personal study and ideal for session planning in larger groups. Emotional Intelligence in Health and Social Care is recommended for all educators and students of medicine, nursing, social care and the Allied Health Professions. When I began my professional training over forty years ago the curriculum paid no attention to the 'stuff' of the 'emotions'. However, when faced with the confusion of real people, and the uncertainty of decision making, I - like everyone else - had to draw on my emotions; feeling my way towards a different kind of knowledge. A book like this might have helped me come to a different understanding of what I needed to do to help myself to coexist with, work alongside and help others. From the Foreword by Phil Barker
