Adam Barnard
R258 R211 Discovery Miles 2 110 Save R47 (18%) Ships in 12 - 17 work days

A unique and entertaining play about bucket lists, life-planning and the disappointing fact that you're not going to live forever. An interwoven web of stories, characters and moments - moments seized, moments wasted, moments you can never forget and moments you wish you could. From the logical case for kissing immediately, to the crisis of filling a free afternoon, buckets is a warm, wise and witty take on a universal dilemma - how do you deal with the fact that time always runs out? It premiered at the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, in May 2015.

""This book takes careful steps to ensure that readers really do engage with its eleven main themes ... all the contributors bring high levels of experience and expertise to their chapters, together with important international perspectives. Barnard sets the scene in an opening chapter, exploring the historical context of values, ethics and professionalization. Written in a clear accessible style, it provides one of the best succinct overviews that can be recommended to any student or practitioner beginning their study of this key theme ... This handbook deserves a wide readership and, if used sensitively, will play an important role in developing good values-based practice in social work and social care."
British Journal of Social Work"

Featuring contributions from key commentators including Lena Dominelli, Sarah Banks, Peter Beresford, Michael Flood and George Ritzer, this diverse text explores an array of concepts and themes that are vital to our understanding of the value base in social work.

Each chapter contains a range of exercises and activities that are intended to encourage students to take a creative and active learning approach to defining and understanding values. Among the key themes examined in the book are the tensions between values such as social justice, anti-oppressive practice, compassion, empathy and the contemporary preoccupation with cost codes, performance management, the obsessive cult of managerialism and the allure from those with power in public life for the emerging 'free market'.

Also included are chapters on: anti-oppressive practice service user values anti-social care violence prevention valuing equality "The Value Base of Social Work and Social Care" is a key text for students undertaking the qualifying social work degree, and for those studying youth work, youth justice, education welfare, probation, health care, counselling and community work. Due to the range of contributors and the current emphasis placed on interprofessional working, it is also relevant to an international audience of practitioners and professionals within the field of social care.

Exploiting Childhood - How Fast Food, Material Obsession and Porn Culture are Creating New Forms of Child Abuse (Paperback):... Exploiting Childhood - How Fast Food, Material Obsession and Porn Culture are Creating New Forms of Child Abuse (Paperback)

Children deserve to live a life that is safe from exploitation and harm, but are we failing in our duty to protect them? Childhood today is big business - it is impossible for any child growing up to avoid pervasive and intense marketing from companies. Whether it be for fatty foods resulting in childhood obesity, expensive franchised toys which encourage tension within families and stigma among friends, or 'pornified' role models who pervert children's ideas of sexuality, research clearly shows that commercial pressures are having a direct impact on children's psychological development and health. This book draws together a series of hard-hitting articles contributed by key thinkers on child welfare and child psychology including Oliver James, Susie Orbach and Gail Dines. Together they identify new and emerging forms of child exploitation, and editor Jim Wild constructs a powerful argument for why current child protection procedures designed to protect children from abuse are no longer adequate. Outspoken and challenging, this book invites us to consider our responsibility for preventing the harm children are experiencing, and is required reading for anyone concerned with the welfare of children.
