Psychosocial and Relationship-Based Practice in Social Work. (Book review)

Resource Description:

Psychosocial and Relationship-Based Practice in Social Work. Book review of: Claudia Megele, Psychosocial and relationship-based practice (2015) Nigel Elliott


Nigel Elliott


This book is relatively slim in size but ambitious in scope; indeed, there is boldness in its coverage which is pulled off with skill and clarity. Its ambition is set out in its ‘main objective’, namely ‘to offer a critical and evidence-informed systemic and integrative approach to psychosocial and relationship-based practice and interventions’


About Nigel Elliott

I qualified as a social worker and probation officer in 1978 and most of my practice experience has been in probation. I have moved between practice, management, in-service training and education, concluding with a lectureship in social work at Kingston University, from which I retired in 2010.
