9781847428615: Building the Client's Relational Base: A Multi-Disciplinary Handbook

This book makes a challenging—but hopeful—argument for anyone with a client relationship: sustainable and accountable interpersonal relationships are a precondition for health and well-being. It argues that there are always opportunities to deepen the quality and range of the client connection. Compellingly written, it brings a host of case studies to life, weaving insights from critical theory and social epidemiology into explorations of the practical actions that any professional committed to strengthening the relational base of their clients can take.

About the Author:

Mark Furlong is a senior lecturer in the School of Health and Social Development at Deakin University in Australia. 

Review:

“This book is a refreshing re-examination of current practice and helpful in suggesting a variance in approach that might be effective in terms of outcomes for the client: it is well worth reading.” (British Journal of Social Work)

“Theoretically sophisticated and very practice oriented; Mark Furlong makes a significant contribution to promoting professional practices which aim to develop the client’s ‘relational self’. A very timely and engaging book.”     (Nigel Parton, University of Huddersfield)

“Mark Furlong has written a valuable sourcebook that will appeal to a wide range of practitioners who are seeking a new yet rigorous approach to their work with clients. It draws creatively on theories of individualism, isolation, inequality, and exclusion to make a strong case for practice that supports clients to build new relationships and strengthen existing ones.”  (Rona Woodward, University of Stirling)

Book Description Policy Press, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Developed from nearly 20 years practice and consulting experience, this ground-breaking text challenges practitioners to understand, and work, with their clients as relational beings rather than independent units, whatever the presenting problem might be.
