Not common sense, not rocket science - a challenging, non-jargonistic and practical book.
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!
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!”
