Health, Welfare & Practice by Jan Walmsley

Book Description

Bringing together key issues in the provision and use of caring services, this volume is an invaluable training resource for health and social work practitioners. Roles and relationships are central themes: their complexity is stressed, as is their relevance to a better understanding of practice. The book's first three sections explore: the distinctions between health and welfare occupations, and informal helping roles; different approaches for practitioners to develop sensitivity to diverse experiences and to challenge unfairly discriminatory responses, attitudes and stereotyped assumptions; and the potential for user empowerment, given the imbalance in power between workers and users. These areas provide practitioners with sources for reflection in the final section. This unique collection encompasses both personal accounts and important current debates. It blends research with practice, and experience with academic insight. Throughout, readers are encouraged to make links across occupational divides and to challenge traditional assumptions. The volume is a Course Reader for the Open University course Roles and Relationships: Perspectives on Practice K663.

Community Care in Perspective by Jan Walmsley Community Care in Perspective, Hardback (October 2006)

This cohesive collection fills a major gap in medical and social history by offering a detailed account of community provision for so-called 'vulnerable adults' in the UK from 1948-2005. It examines key issues such as charity versus rights, the role of the market in care provision and the changing construction of social categories.

Inclusive Research with People with Learning Disabilities by Jan Walmsley Inclusive Research with People with Learning Disabilities, Paperback (March 2003)

The authors discuss participative approaches to research and provide an up-to-date account of inclusive practice with individuals with learning disabilities. Drawing on evidence from two major studies, they explain how lessons learnt from inclusive research in the learning disability field are applicable to others working with marginalized groups.

Care Matters by Jan Walmsley Care Matters, Paperback (December 1998)

The contributors to this volume examine the meaning of care, considering how "good" care can be defined and evaluated. The authors identify common ground in the diversity of those giving and receiving care, particularly concerns about personal empowerment, choice, self esteem and independence.
