How Not to Practice Social Work Book Description:

First things first: this is not your grandma's social work textbook. There are no regulations to review, no mid-term or final to study for, and it probably won't help you pass your licensing exam. Instead, this book focuses on you – the person behind the title – and how to make yourself more purposely influential in every area of your life. Think of it as Self-Help 101 for the professional helper – a transformational lesson on how the very best and most balanced social workers straddle the thin line between their well being and their clients'. Once you become truly aware of the things that hinder your process, you'll be amazed to find how easy it is to bust through those road blocks and not only enhance your skills, but help a lot more people in the process. This helper-friendly guide reveals: • The Truth About People Who Seek Help • How to Spot an Unhealthy Practitioner and Make Sure You're Not One of Them • The #1 Governing Principle of Social Work Practice (And Why It's The Only One That Matters)• Guaranteed Ways To Avoid Burnout and Love Your Profession and Life
