I was going to skip a week because I’m in Scotland this weekend but I couldn’t resist because I’ve come across some great posts I really wanted to share!
Always Something to Complain About (love the blog title!) a social worker from Queensland, reflects on the floods and waits for the cyclone (as she wrote this). I think she has every right to complain.
How not to do Social Work reflects on a tough strategy meeting.
Nectarine at Going Mental has a fantastic ‘Day in the Life’ post.
SocialJerk takes a Teen Girls Group and raises some vitally important issues.
Fat Social Worker is considering setting up a group against size discrimination.
Nechakogel’s blog shares some links about culturally sensitive practice particularly in relation to working with those from the Muslim Arab world.
On Classroom to Capitol, Melinda looks at ‘intergenerational policy convergence’ in relation to her parents and children.
Malcolm Payne on Social Work Around the World shares some thoughts about ‘big society’
And Diary of a Social Worker has a definition of Social Services – very interesting to look at from an international perspective!
Of course, there have been many more fantastic posts that I haven’t had time to link and read. I’d highly recommend trawling through the Social Work Blog Directory!
Have a good weekend. I’ll try not to eat too many haggises (blergh)
