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).
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.
Topics covered in Series 3 include, how social workers work with people and how we can learn and draw from other disciplines.
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.
