not yet rated|write a review
The contributors to this book use ideas drawn from psychoanalysis, open systems theory, Bion's work with groups, and group relations training to explore the difficulties experienced by managers and staff in a wide range of care settings. Each concept is introduced in as non-technical a way as possible and illustrated with examples from practice to make it recognizable and useful to the reader.
Each chapter develops a theme relating to work with a particular client group or setting (including hospitals, schools, daycare centers, residential units, community services, and others), or explores aspects of work organization (for example, the supervisory relationship, facing cuts and closure, or intergroup collaboration). By describing both the difficulties and their own feelings and thoughts while consulting to these institutions, the authors offer the reader new ways of looking at their own stressful experiences at work.
