Working at Therapeutic Practice
The book is a comprehensive guide for family centre workers, and for all social workers working with children and families. Based on a psychodynamic approach emphasising the central importance of attachment in relationships, the book also applies systemic ideas and the 'therapeutic community' approach to the overall design of the centres.
This collection of papers written by respected experts with extensive experience builds a powerful picture of the theory and practice of therapeutic community work with young people. A wide variety of therapeutic community approaches is considered alongside an analysis of the implications of this model for mainstream residential practice.
Getting to the Heart of Practice
This book provides a thorough guide to relationship-based practice in social work, communicating the theory using illustrative case studies and offering a model for practice. This book will be an invaluable textbook for undergraduate and post-graduate social work students, practitioners on post-qualifying courses and all social work professionals.
