Revisiting the Use of Self Author : Deena Mandell Publisher : Canadian Scholars’ Press Total Pages : 254 Release : 2007 ISBN 10 : 9781551303345 ISBN 13 : 1551303345 Language : EN, FR, DE, ES & NL GET BOOK Revisiting the Use of Self Book Description: In recent years, several developments have stimulated new ways of thinking about the social worker's "self" or "selves?" in all aspects of practice. The focus on practice with diverse populations and the emphasis of ?anti-oppressive? practice have highlighted elements of the worker's relationship to their clients. The objective of this book is threefold: 1. To explore the adequacy of the concept ?use of self? for clinical practice. 2. To provide grounded accounts of practitioner's use of self in critical practice approaches. 3. To broaden the scope of the concept of critical use of self to fields of service where it is under-theorized, for example, community work, addictions, and corrections.
