Perspectives on management and leadership in social work

Lawler, John and Hafford-Letchfield, Trish ORCID logoORCID:, eds. (2013) Perspectives on management and leadership in social work. Whiting and Birch, London. ISBN 9781861770882. [Book]


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.
