Social Work Reclaimed : Innovative Frameworks for Child and Family Social Work Practice, Paperback / softback Book

Social Work Reclaimed : Innovative Frameworks for Child and Family Social Work Practice Paperback / softback

Edited by Steve Goodman, Isabelle Trowler

Description

Reclaiming Social Work (RSW) is a radical new system for delivering child and family social work in the UK.

The system was first piloted in the London Borough of Hackney and the model has gained national recognition.

At the heart of this innovative system is the endeavour to keep children together with their families. This book sets out what the Reclaiming Social Work model is, how it was implemented, and how it works.

It explains the RSW system of social work 'units' made up of clinicians and therapists and headed by a consultant social worker, and demonstrates how it has worked in practice.

The evidence base and theories underlying the model are also explained.

Several chapters are written by consultant social workers with extensive experience of working within RSW, which outline the methodological approaches used.

This book on a pioneering new social work model will be of great interest to social work managers, policymakers and academics.
