Synopsis:

This text considers: the value of social work in the light of what users and carers want from the services; the value base of the new policies for reform; the role of the social worker in different settings; and ways of taking these values and skills forward into new settings. It reinforces the tremendous resource that social workers can be to people in the greatest need in our society. It aims to help their usually more numerous colleagues in the new Mental Health Trusts and in other statutory and voluntary agencies to value the contribution social work can bring. At a time of clear national strategy and policy frameworks, investment in new programmes and major structural upheaval in the organizations - both health and social care - which deliver services to individuals, families and communities, this text sets progress against a background of controversy surrounding the Mental Health Bill, historical cul-de-sacs in policy and service development; regular moral panics; past under-investment pessimism; and a workforce under considerable strain at a time when the demographic tide is running away from us.

The book also addresses the challenges of how to retain and motivate a scarce number of skilled staff and how to encapsulate values and skills when the structures around such staff are undergoing major change. It looks ahead to new mental health legislation, and beyond.
