E Ko te Matakahi Maire – Therapeutic Social Work by Nicki Weld
Winner of the 2017 ANZASW Supreme Award and Certificate of Excellence for Innovation in practice.
This handbook provides a framework for therapeutic social work that describes working from a relational foundation with loss and grief, anger, anxiety, supporting healthy self and inter-personal relationships, and providing psycho-education around relational trauma. It offers practical ideas, reflection questions, and examples from practice in each of these areas. There is also exploration around the conscious use of self when undertaking therapeutic work, and a description of supportive counselling. An example of a group and individual programme is provided to help implement the ideas and resources in the book.
