Description

Observation in Health and Social Care
Applications for Learning, Research and Practice with Children and Adults

Edited by Helen Hingley-Jones, Clare Parkinson and Lucille Allain
Quick Overview

One of the key skills in effective health and social care is accurately identifying and assessing the client's needs. This theoretically informed guide will show you how to enhance and apply these pivotal observation skills in a variety of challenging health and social settings with children, families and adults.

Examining and exploring new approaches to therapeutic observation in health and social care, this multidisciplinary guide discusses and analyses its uses in a range of practical contexts with children, families and adults.

Developing good observation skills is paramount to sustaining relationships in the challenging settings that health and social care professionals find themselves in. This guide shows how observation is taught, applied in practice, and how it will be returned to throughout professionals' careers.

Drawing on psychoanalytic ideas and theories of human development as a base for professional learning, the experienced editors and authors offer theoretically informed models to teach observation skills in professional programmes, helping their readers prepare for successful intervention in any setting.
