Working with Aggression and Resistance in Social Work

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology

Abstract

Social workers have roles that require them to engage with clients and families who may be ‘reluctant clients’, ambivalent or resistant towards those seeking to help and protect. This includes safeguarding roles in relation to children and vulnerable adults, and work to engage with marginalised groups such as young offenders and those with mental health and substance misuse problems. This book provides a blend of practice and theory to assist the student social worker on qualifying training to prepare to work with clients, families, groups and communities that may be ambivalent, resistant, reluctant, aggressive or hostile.
