The Truth About Social Work
Without that understanding, social workers cannot analyse their cases effectively and they may not appreciate what kind of evidence they need to present to the court. I have often wondered if it is lack of proper understanding of the burden and standard of proof which explains why so many care cases go off the rails. I spoke to the students for about an hour, largely exploring areas I discuss in this post about the importance of the rule of law and this post about achieving best evidence in Children Act cases. But — for me at least — the most interesting part of the day was the discussion that followed afterwards. We spoke about the importance of discussion between the different professions to enable us to understand the parameters and limits of our different roles. I spoke about how social media was still on balance a very positive force in my life as it had enabled me to meet and talk to people I would otherwise never have met.

I thought I'd begin by explaining a little bit about who I am and why I'm so passionate about this project Most of you probably know me best as 'Social Work Tutor' and will have seen my writing on Facebook, read one of my articles for a newspaper or come across my blogs where I talk about the need to promote the good work we all do. If you're familiar with my writing then you're also likely to know just how much I care about Social Work and want to get the message out about how vitally important our work is in the modern world. I love being a Social Worker, I take great pride in the work we do and I believe that our profession really does help the world go round. We work with every type of person, in every type of place and with every type of need imaginable. From pre-birth to palliative care, we are there when life begins and when it ends; often there for people who have nobody else fighting for them.

This post was intended to be a post about a book, but its grown like Topsy. I have therefore split it into two posts, the first is about Social Work Tutor, the author of the book, and the second about the book itself. You can read the first part here. This is the second part. I wanted to see what this book was like. I wanted to review it with an open mind and NOT judge it by its cover or my pre-existing worries about SWT's other output.
