Loss and Social Work by Caroline Currer

Book Description

Service users frequently encounter services at times of personal or family crisis. As a result, all social workers need to be aware of the impact of loss if they are to work effectively. This book looks at theoretical developments surrounding issues of change, loss and grieving, encouraging social workers to explore and reflect on the relevance of such issues to their own practice. Furthermore, the book discusses the potential impact of practitioners' own experiences of loss. Issues are explored with reference to the Codes of Practice for Social Care Workers, National Occupational Standards and examples of interdisciplinary working across contexts.
