Management in Social Work (3rd Edition)
All social workers are required to manage and be accountable. The third edition of this classic book explores what is an area of rapid change that is central to professional practice. This new edition has been brought right up-to-date to meet the needs of today’s social work practitioners and service managers by discussing legislation, policy and procedure in light of central government’s modernising agenda for social work. The authors show how management theory is moving towards a more open and cooperative model and demonstrate that it can serve an agenda of empowerment, equipping social workers to question procedures, shape policy and improve services.
