2b Counselling

Continuing our exploration of what we can learn from different disciplines, we discuss how counselling skills enhance social work. We look at how we use our humanity to relate to others and how we provide containment so people can explore dilemmas.

2a Building a relationship

In this podcast, we continue the social work journey by considering how to build a relationship. We look at relationship-based social work, and at the theories and evidence that underpin this. We draw on Relationship-Based Social Work, Second Edition (Edited by Gillian Ruch, Danielle Turney and Adrian Ward, 2018).

1b Biology and psychology

In this episode, our first ‘b’ podcast for series 3, we start our exploration of what we can learn from different disciplines. We consider what we can learn from biology and psychology: how we can slow down; be reflexive; and understand why we and others are behaving as we are.

1a First contact

Welcome to the first podcast for Series 3. In our ‘a’ podcasts this series we are looking at the social work journey, starting here with first contact. We discuss how we can overcome barriers to make our first encounter with someone helpful and hopeful.
