Social Work Pocket Guides are an entirely new concept in social work. They are designed to help busy practitioners to get to the bottom of the What? Why? and How? of the chosen subject.

Recent research confirms what those in the profession have known for some time – social workers are particularly vulnerable to work-related stress and burnout.

This brand new Pocket Guide explores what is meant by stress and burnout. It considers why social workers are so vulnerable to work-related stress. How social workers can develop their resilience to stress is a central theme of the Guide. Recognising the value of social workers developing a personal stress management plan, a range of practical tips are provided.

Siobhan Maclean is a registered social worker with a passion for practice education. Siobhan has written a number of publications for social workers and students including the immensely popular “Theory and Practice”. She is committed to making the knowledge base accessible for busy practitioners.
