Working in group care (ie: residential and day services) is a challenging and complex task, demanding great skill, patience, knowledge and understanding. This book explains how the best practice can be achieved through the focused and engaged work of individuals and teams who are well supported and managed. Detailed attention is paid to the value of everyday practice and it's underlying principles. The book brings together theory, practice and research findings from across the whole field of group care for all user-groups - including health, education and probation settings as well as social work and social care. The first edition was warmly welcomed as "well organised and accessible...and a valuable addition to the literature" (British Journal of Social Work). This second edition is updated and expanded, including substantial new material on the concept of 'opportunity led work'. The book will be an essential text for all those involved in residential and day care practice whether as practitioners, students, managers or trainers. It argues strongly for seeing group care as valuable and skilled work and for a holistic understanding of good practice.
