Care by Judith Phillips

Book Description

Care is a diverse and evolving concept. It is taken as a natural part of life yet it is shaped by philosophical, ideological, political and economic arguments concerning its definition and purpose as well as how, where and to whom it is provided and funded. This lucid book provides an introduction to the concept of care, mapping out and unravelling the complex debates that surround its theory and practice. Key aspects of care, such as boundaries, cultural and geographical spheres of care, the ethics of care and citizenship, are explored in full. For social workers, nurses and those engaged in social care the book also aims to deepen understanding of professional experiences, assumptions and values by examining practice and decision-making. Appropriate practice scenarios and issues appear throughout to encourage the reader to reflect on professional issues including the risks associated with care, care management, partnership working, ecological and empowerment approaches. The book concludes with a framework for a reconceptualisation of care, located within the challenges of technological advances and globalisation. Care will appeal to students in the social and health sciences and social care professions and anyone reflecting on the importance of care in their work.
