More About the Author

Adrian Ward's new book, 'Leadership in Residential Child Care, A relationship-based approach', is available only from the publishers, Smokehouse Press of Norwich, at www.smokehousepress.co.uk.

Adrian was born in London and now lives in Norwich, UK. His first degree was in English Literature, after which he trained in social work and worked in residential child care, including leading a therapeutic children's home in London for seven years. The new book draws on his experience in residential child care as a leader, and later as an educator and consultant.

From that leadership post, Adrian moved into academic work, teaching social workers and other child care workers for many years, firstly at Reading University then at UEA in Norwich, and most recently at the Tavistock Clinic in London, although he has now moved on from there to follow other interests. He has returned to literature and writing, and recently completed an MA in Life Writing in the School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing at UEA.

He has written and edited several books, and contributed to many others, such as his two chapters in 'Broken Bounds', a collection on the influence of the psychoanalyst Donald Winnicott, including one on the 'English Riots' of 2011. His other interests are in the arts generally, and especially photography, and to see some of his photographs or to read some examples of his writing, go to his website, www.adrianward.org.uk. He is always interested in corresponding with readers and in getting feedback about his writing

Product Description

Review

Relationship Based Social Work re-affirms the importance of the working relationship between social worker and service user within a contemporary perspective. This is a timely and thought provoking work which provides a well argued counterpoint to the increasing dominance of managerial and outcomes-based approaches to social work practice. As such it will be of great value to students and practitioners alike. --Martin Gill, Lecturer in Social Work, University of East Anglia, UK

Format: Paperback
As a social work practitioner and lecturer in social work, this is the book I have been waiting for. At last I am reading a text book that has true practice resonance for me. The text is well written, motivating and inspirational and is a useful tool in practice and theoretical learning. I will be using this book as a core text in module teaching, and will be recommending that students purchase the book as part of essential reading. I have reread several chapters, so I hope it will be available in hardback soon?

I found this book to be really useful in my studies and it was also an excellent read. It really helped me to see the links between theory and practice and I would recommend it without hesitation.
