Perspectives on Management and Leadership in Social Work

Trish Hafford-Letchfield (Editor), John Lawler (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This book examines developments in management and leadership in the social work environment, from both practice-based and academic perspectives. The chapters reflect developments in a range of international settings including those of Europe, South Africa and New Zealand. They represent a range of different approaches also, from the critical to the more affirmative and liberating. The book illustrates the impact of the development of management and leadership in social work, in the current context of marketisation and globalisation, together with the need to focus on service users. Social work has altered significantly as a result of such changes, presenting particular challenges for social work managers. These are detailed and discussed in this book.
