Social Work: Voices from the Inside offers unique insight into social work from the perspectives of those ‘on the inside’, that is, service users, carers and practitioners.

Drawing on a narrative tradition, fifty-nine people from across the UK tell their stories about how and why social work came into their lives, and what happened next. Key topics are discussed, including:

children and family social work

criminal justice social work

mental health social work

residential child care

social work with disabled people

social work with older people

lessons for the future.

Focusing on issues for good practice in social work and social work education, this book is essential reading for students and academics of social work and social policy. It will also appeal to social work professionals and those in allied health, education and care areas.

Review:

'A timely and reassuring reminder of the strengths of social work...It highlights the beliefs and values that we share with service users and carers. This is is a motivating read for uncertain students and exhausted practitioners in particular, but will also give every reader some timeless messages about how social work can and should be done in order to benefit all those involved.'  Journal of Social Work

'This is a very useful and positive book focusing on key themes for service users, their families and carers, and social work practitioners alike...[It] will also be useful for students in learning more about service users' experiences, positive and negative, of our input and in appreciating that it is sometimes necessary to challenge boundaries and service restrictions in order to remain person-centred in our practice.'Community Care
