The book explores the idea that to prevent or solve problems within organisations, one needs to look not only at the conscious elements, but also to understand the unconscious aspects. It presents a unique approach derived from direct participant observation of small units within institutions, all within the health and social services sector. It will help all health care workers, teachers and managers to better understand the functioning of their organisations. 175 pages.
