What is Social Work at its best? Social Work has laboured too long under a 'deficit' model that focuses on failings and problems of practice. This book seeks to redress the balance, with its emphasis on best practice, strengths and collaborative partnership. Each substantive chapter provides insights into real social work encounters with service users, colleagues and managers, to create an intimate account of social work practice.
