Relating Experience : Stories from Health and Social Care Paperback / softback

Edited by Caroline Malone, Liz Forbat, Martin Robb, Janet Seden


This reader provides a diverse selection of accounts of interpersonal communication and relationships in the context of health and social care.

Most of the contributions are personal narratives by people using or working in care services; the majority are contemporary and many have been written especially for this anthology.

The book also includes other kinds of accounts, including attempts to encapsulate in fictional, poetic and visual form something of the nature of encounters in the context of care.

There are sections on changing relationships, the way things happen, the physical context of care, difficult encounters, and working together, as well as cross-cutting themes such as power and diversity. Relating Experience is an essential resource for students of social work, nursing, health and social policy, and for all involved in health and social care services, whether as professionals, carers or service users.
