Booknews
Provides a theoretical framework for training and professional development in social care, with particular emphasis on group learning in the social care context. Opening chapters examine the organizational context of social care training, including issues related to inter-agency training. Consideration is given to tensions and dilemmas of a contract culture, a climate of continual change, and a mixed economy of welfare. Later chapters focus on delivering training by exploring the application of theoretical perspectives of learning to the planning, design, and delivery of training courses. Annotation c.
