About this book
Dealing with Stress tackles the complex issues of pressure and stress in social work. It covers aspects of research and theory but its main focus is on practice - the practical application of an informed approach to stress management. It provides guidance for managers and practitioners and promotes a positive, but realistic, approach to coping with the pressures of an occupation which deals with human misery, loss, suffering, oppression and deprivation. In doing this, it takes account of the dilemmas, conflicts and tensions inherent in the social work role and the political and organisational contexts in which they occur.
