In recognition (note – not celebration) of the Glorious Twelfth which is traditionally the start of the grouse hunting season, I give you, twelve bloggers whose posts have caught my attention recently and that I haven’t been able to fit in anywhere else! I haven’t been very good at linking to other writers rather than newspaper articles so a mild attempt to remedy.
And so, in no particular order
Awake and Dreaming discusses ways that clients of her service could carry out performance evaluations and seeks a further progression of the idea here
therapydoc at Everyone Needs Therapy writes about both The importance of boundaries in professional relationships and the importance of flexibility.
Reas Kroicowl (I know it’s a pseudonym but I’d love to know someone with a name like that actually existed – a lot more creative than my random initials!) at Trench Warfare asks medical professionals (and everyone else really) to be aware of the impact that their judgements can have on tweens.
Prin on her site, Prin’s Links for Social Work Students, alongside providing endless resource links and blog tweaks, shares her dreams and reminds us of the importance to pursue those we have.
Alicia at Mental Health Notes draws attention to mental health in China in a timely fashion and also gives an interview at Mental Health Humor (I know, I had to pause on the spelling there – there seems to be a ‘u’ missing but I’ll respect the original – for once!).
Cellar Door at Not another Nursing Student Blog explains about working with her husband in the same hospital along with some of the positives and negatives
Blue Jean Social Work has a wonderful analysis of the development of the social worker, from fresh and eager to wise and experienced (via jaded… but out the other end again!). She also shares some of the tools she uses in family therapy settings.
Zarathustra at Mental Nurse debates the value of the value of nursing as a university discipline here and the discussion that follows is definitely worth a read!
The Social Work Blog shares some unusual social work tales from the US however also highlights a more serious tale from Philadelphia where seven social workers have been suspended following accusations of negligence
And Illusive Joy in her self-directed search for joy explains that social work in a prison setting can lead to a greater understanding of the human condition.
Do let me know if you like the ’round up’ type posts. I haven’t done any before (and this took a lot longer than it probably looks like it did – mostly because I had a lot more links I could use!).
