Reprint. [First: 1993 Thus] From the cover: “Health, Welfare and Practice explores key issues in the provision and use of the caring services. Focusing particularly on roles and relationships, it offers an invaluable resource for the training of health and social work practitioners. A wide range of authors — researchers, practitioners and service users -address four main themes: Experience and expertise — what distinguishes health and welfare occupations from informal helping roles? Diversity and discrimination — how can practitioners develop sensitivity to diverse experiences, and challenge stereotypes and prejudiced responses? Empowerment and power — how far is it possible to empower the users of welfare services? Reflecting on practice — how can practitioners develop a reflective approach? This unique collection encompasses both personal accounts and important current debates. It blends research with practice, and experience with academic insight. Throughout, readers are encouraged to make links across occupational divides and to challenge traditional assumptions.”
