9781446201848: Social Work Practice with Older People: A Positive Person-Centred Approach

Older people are the biggest service user group for social workers and an increasing proportion of the population. In this refreshingly positive and practical textbook, Rory Lynch draws on years of practice and teaching  experience to show how to achieve best social work practice with older adults. He takes a person-centred approach, which fosters respect by valuing the fact that elderly people have more lived experience than others.

Exploring the key theoretical approaches and methods of intervention, this book helps social workers to identify, understand and facilitate their service users’ wishes for well-being and a fulfilling older age. Chapters are practice-driven, containing case studies drawn from a range of care settings, reflective questions and exercises.

Mapping directly onto the key modules on the social work degree, this is essential reading for all student social workers, especially as they prepare to go on their practice placement. It is also valuable reading for qualified social workers.

Rory Lynch is Lecturer in Social Work at Robert Gordon University.

Review:

This important book attaches real value to working with older people, challenging ageist practice and encouraging a skilled approach in social work students and practitioners. (David Mercer)

Insightful, reflective, theoretically sound, and practically feasible. Rory Lynch’s polished attempt at the challenging topic of social work practice with older people is indeed an important update on the current plethora of unheralded and less readable practice guides. His is destined to get much mileage in both the local and international practice arena.

(Professor Sharhidd Booley)
