This book is a call for confident, skilled and knowledgeable practice in social work. The current managerialist agenda has restricted judgement and the exercise of discretion in the profession, and, more damagingly, has played down the social justice components of social work, as well as the responsibilities for therapeutic and change-orientated interventions. This book explores how, through strong self-leadership, social workers can both explain and demonstrate how social work can achieve positive change. Offering a fresh and innovative view on leadership for social workers, managers of social services and social work students at all levels, the book identifies tactics and strategies to provide leadership both within a team and in senior positions.Reflections from Practice Bill Mckitterick. a#39;scholar-practitionera#39;70-1 SCIE (Social Care Institute for Excellence) 12, 58, 61-2, 136-7 SCIE and University of Bristol 21 SCLD User and Carer Forum 13-14 Scottish Consortium for Learning Disabilityanbsp;...
