New podcasts on social work relationships

The latest podcasts from Jo Fox  and me are on relationships between social workers. The first is about relationships with colleagues, including group dynamics. The second is about social work as a single profession.

In the second part of our seventh podcast we talk about how we can collaborate and thrive as one profession, despite differences, in the current context of reform and scarce resources.

7a Relationships with colleagues

The first part of our seventh podcast is about our relationships with colleagues. We take a look at what makes a helpful colleague and how groups can work well together. We offer a model for discussion to help avoid group think and power issues.

6b Recording

In the second part of our sixth podcast we talk about recording and the myth that ‘if it isn’t written down, it didn’t happen.’ We look at how recording can empower people, as well as supporting accountability and good practice.

6a Workload

The first part of our sixth podcast is on workload. We take a look at the evidence around how best to manage work. We also look at the impact of targets, and the importance of focusing on outcomes rather than outputs.
