Anti-bureaucractic Social Work


Previous price: £13.50

Bureaucracy excludes people and leads to poor social services because it puts the organisation first, not the client and service user. Managerialism damaged social services by its emphasis on controlling the organisation and its workers. It pursues out-moded policies which exclude users from partnership in social services. �Anti-bureaucratic Social Work� builds on advocacy and good professional practice with users. It aims to overcome the rigidity of over-bureaucratic managerialised social services with focus on putting the rights and needs of citizens and service users first.
