There are significant personal and professional challenges for social workers in managing both reason and emotion in the exercise of their professional judgement. Reflection on the role of both reason and emotion, in the context of relationship-based practice, is necessary in order to achieve the best outcomes for service users. At this conference, keynote speakers will explore these issues from different perspectives. The afternoon workshops, lead by the keynote speakers and others, will give practitioners the opportunity for further discussion and to consider applications to their own practice. PROFESSOR DAVID HOWE, PROFESSOR GILLIAN RUCH and MINNA DAUM are amongst the speakers at this all day conference. Read more
