Practising social care professionals ensure teaching is relevant to the cutting edge of today’s social work agenda and teaching methods facilitate participative learning. The Department has an active research base framed within the spheres of social justice and radical social work and prides itself on a policy oriented approach. The MA is taught within this ethos and students are encouraged to consider questions about inequalities in social work policy and practise and how they might be countered.

The most profound effect of the demise of the educational influence was that the process goals of community work were not developed beyond the rudimentary expression they were given in the texts of the 1950s and 1960s… The educational aspects of intervention… have remained rooted in two narrow orthodoxies… The first… was that process goals became associated in the minds of the new practitioners of the 1970s only with changes in individual or personal development. The second orthodoxy was to identify process goals with the rhetoric of ‘raising political consciousness’… The educational goals of community work embrace both these… but they are also much wider. (Thomas 1983: 31)

Hear from one of Professor Michael Lavalette about about studying Social Work at Liverpool Hope.

Butcher, H., Collis, P., Glen, A. and Sills, P. (1980) , London: Routledge and Kegan Paul. 290 + xiv pages. One of the few substantial studies of community groups and community initiatives. The book combines five substantial case studies with a thematic commentary and analysis. The latter looks at: groups and their environment; goals and foal achievement; organization: process and structure; strategy, tactics and resources; the role of the community worker.

Barr, A. (1991) , London: Community Development Foundation. 184 6+ xii pages. Rare study of the actual practice and thinking of workers which makes for fascinating reading. Dispels much of the radical rhetoric around the work. Sections look at the study; the nature of community work; workers views of their practice (includes aspirations; workers and managers; politicians, and community groups); and ‘reflections’ (community work and local government, the state, planning and participation; local interests).

Information & resources on a range of social work subjects

By the early 1990s the position of work had become a little battered and activity was reduced (Popple 1995: 30). The squeeze on public expenditure; moves to curtail the activities of local authorities (and even to abolish some – such as the Greater London Council); continued high levels of unemployment and poverty; and movements into community care had all acted to alter the face of the work. As Butcher (1992) argued at the beginning of the decade, ‘community work’ was going through considerable change and redefinition.

By the mid-1990s it was clear that community work approaches were being further harnessed to the development of centrally planned initiatives such as community care; and have become less the province of the traditional concerns of community organization and development. Where people have been able to hang on to some of these concerns – as perhaps has been the case in a number of the rural community initiatives (see Francis and Henderson 1992) – the emphasis was arguably less on fostering democracy than on facilitating enterprise, holding onto local services such as post offices and pubs, and on developing social provision such as housing. There has also been a flurry of interest in rural work (Francis and Henderson 1992; Henderson and Francis 1993) and in children’s work (Henderson 1995; Cannan and Warren 1997).

· Methods and Theories of Social Work Interventions (20 credits)

I was aware that school social workers had a degree but, I was under the impression that such degree was not needed to work in a place like the department of social services and both positions carried the same title.

But, I never considered a career in social work.

I will be using relevant theory and will critically discuss the relationship among the service user, carers and family members, and relevant social care practitioners, within the context of working in partnership with service users.

· Methods and Theories of Social Work Interventions (20 credits)

Leaper, R. A. B. (1968) Community Work. Common ground explored in an experimental course, London: National Council of Social Service. 211 + vi pages. Provides a nice snapshot of thinking and brings out the then central focus – of working with community groups. Chapters on ‘community’, surveying, administration, techniques and principles, process and learning. Various useful appendices.

My interest in social work began at a young age.

Midgley, J. et al (1986) , London: Methuen. 181 + ix pages. The book begins with an excellent overview of community participation and is followed by chapters exploring community participation in health, education, rural development, urban development and housing, and social work. Midgley completes the collection with an examination of community participation, the state and social policy. Good for placing ‘community work’ within a wider context of practice thinking.
