Set of Social Work Theory Cards and a copy of Share Perfect Bound

This book is written by three social work educators with over 70 years’ experience of social work practice and education between them. Concerned about the profession of social work in the UK, the authors have devised a new model of social work called ‘SHARE’. As the book discusses, one of the key drivers in developing the SHARE model was ensuring that the diversity of voices in social work are heard, including practitioners, service users and carers, experts by experience, managers, academics and many others. Unusually, the book contains the voices of over 40 social work stakeholders and the authors ‘share’ their own experiences. The SHARE model, as the book explores, aims at re-orientating social work back to a more emancipatory and shared position. The SHARE model is designed around five distinct yet connected components, which the book explores: SEEING HEARING ACTION READING EVAUATION The SHARE model can be applied in any social work (and indeed comparator) practice and education setting and the final chapter illustrates the way that the SHARE model can be used in social work practice, supervision and practice education. The book is written in an engaging and highly accessible way, whilst ensuring that the issues covered are given the necessary depth of exploration. The book is research informed and utilises a wide range of theory. As visual learners and proponents of creative methods in social work practice and education, the authors have ensured the book is creative and participatory. The book is intended to be written in !


This set of cards briefly outlines a wide range of theories and models in social work. This second edition set contains 101 cards. 100 theories, models and approaches are covered, whilst the final card explains the difference between a theory, model, method and approach. Social Work Theory Cards provide an exciting opportunity to use more creative techniques when exploring theory and practice with both students and qualified staff. Every practice educator and indeed every social work team, should have a set. The pack contains an explanatory booklet with lots of ideas about how to use the cards, but the possibilities are limitless. The cards are presented in a handy box set along with some blank cards which can be completed to add further to the set. Originally designed for use by practice educators in supervision, many social work students are buying the cards as prompt cards to help them widen their repertoire of social work theory. The prompt card set provides a good investment for a social work career, since the pack can be updated as necessary. If you have a first edition set, then an update pack is available as a separate purchase.
