Not common sense, not rocket science - just training and support

Training and supporting the care force - that's nearly all of us!
By Maggie Kindred 
A new, challenging, non-jargonistic and practical book
Carers literally blossom when they are offered non-jargonistic, practical training and support. This book is about helping carers to recognise and value the skills they already possess, and develop these - from this comes an unbelievable amount of support, as well as making all kinds of everyday experiences more interesting and enjoyable.
This book therefore helps carers to
- recognise and value the skills they already possess
- develop these skills through applying theory to everyday situations
- understand the complex social welfare background of today, since knowledge is power
- be equipped to work with people who have very different backgrounds and experience from their own
- deal with jargon!

Author Maggie Kindred says “My career took me through teaching, social work and practice teaching, to Kindred Games and Books.co.uk
I enjoy working with students who may be new to adult education, have learning or mental health difficulties, or have had bad experiences in the classroom. The working lives of a whole range of social carers can be enriched by a small amount of productive training, if this is delivered in a non-jargonistic way, emphasizing the skills they already possess instead of the theories they don't!”
Adage of Kindred Games and Books 'Take the material seriously, but don’t take yourself!' too seriously’.
