New Book Aims to Get Behind the Headlines to Offer New Insights for Social Workers and Psychologists
Thursday, 09 February 2017
A new book, written by two academics at the University of Worcester, aims to encourage social workers to get back to the ‘personal’ touch.
Social work has become increasingly depersonalised in an era of managerialism and performance management, with many aspects of what were once known as the ‘personal social services’ having been lost.
Psychology and Social Work, is a timely reminder for social workers and other professionals that the personal and the individual should still be at the centre of everything they do. It brings together, in a genuine multidisciplinary approach, contributions from applied psychology arenas – such as clinical, health, forensic and organisational psychology - to social work theory and practice, in light of cutting-edge research and theoretical debates.
