"What role does social work play in human service organizations? How do social workers experience and initiate organizational change? How can they engage and negotiate with managers and other professionals? How does a social worker deal with ethical and interpersonal conflicts within organizations? 'Organisations and Management in Social Work' grounds these complex questions in a comprehensive and accessible overview of the organizational context of social work practice. The book demonstrates how effective service delivery is dependent on organizational and managerial activities and procedures, and emphasizes the importance of critiquing existing organizational structures." -- Publisher's website.
