Working with Adults: Values into practice
The importance of child-centred practice as a key part of the value base of working with children and young people is well established. But what about working with adults? How do values make a positive difference? By providing a sound base of understanding and best practice, the authors give trainers and tutors an excellent tool for promoting learning in this area. Topics include promoting dignity – what it means in practice, working in partnerships with service users and carers, legal and moral issues, listening skills, rights and risks, assessment and partnership, continuing professional development and staff care, discrimination and oppression, language sensitivity and workplace culture.
This exciting new series of learning and development manuals brings together a team of highly experienced writers, practitioners and learning facilitators with series editor Neil Thompson, a well-respected author and educator. Together, they ensure that these manuals offer an effective way of bridging academic content with the challenging world of practice. As such, they will be invaluable for training presenters and tutors wanting to host events addressing the important range of issues covered by each manual.
Each one provides all the resources you need to provide a high quality learning experience, including helpful background material to set the scene, a range of exercises and worksheets to encourage participant involvement and associated PowerPoint slides to aid the clear and effective presentation of key elements of knowledge and practice. These expertly written resources will provide a foundation of understanding and confidence that will enable even the most inexperienced of trainers to provide high-quality training.
