Working with Human Service Organisations
Creating Connections for Practice
By (author) Fiona Gardner
Working with Human Service Organisations by Fiona Gardner
Book DescriptionWorkers in human service organisations often find work with clients relatively manageable, but struggle to work effectively with their employing agency, particularly when translating professional values and a client-centred approach to practice. Working with Human Service Organisations provides students and human service workers with a range of tools to assist them to reflect and act critically and creatively within organisations. In Part One, the current context for workers and organisations is examined in relation to organisational theory and practice theory. In Part Two, a model for integrated practice is proposed to enable students to make connections between their professional training and the aims and structures of the organisation.
