Independent Social Work - A Risky Business?


With chapters contributed by members of BASW’s Independents’ Forum, this book covers a range of opinions and styles, combining some very serious issues and remarkable creativity. This reflects the very wide cross section of social workers who have elected to run their own businesses and who celebrate the satisfaction they derive from their chosen path, whilst realistically identifying the many pitfalls that await the unwary practitioner. The book is deliberately organised in such a way as to demonstrate the variety of skills along with the qualities and the flair which independent social workers and consultants bring to their work and is essential reading for anyone contemplating becoming independent.
