Roads to Recovery: Inspiring Stories from Survivors of Illness, Accident and Loss
Traynor, Pamela
Book Number: 52882
ISBN: 1864481951
Allen & Unwin July 1, 1997 8vo softcover 288pp near fine. Why does one person recover from serious illness or accident when, in very similar circumstances, another does not? This is the question which led Pamela Traynor to the people whose inspirational stories are told in ROADS TO RECOVERY. Their accounts of terrible accidents, illness - cancer and schizophrenia - and loss through death or torture reveal amazing determination on their part, and the sustaining power of loving supporters. How does a quadriplegic at sixteen become a highly successful business executive by the age of forty? How does a plane-crash victim told 'you'll never walk again' go on to become a fully qualified pilot? What are the mental strengths needed to fight and conquer cancer? How can victims of torture and persecution rebuild their lives and their optimism about human nature? The eloquent stories told in ROADS TO RECOVERY answer some of these questions, and further insights come from the views of medical experts on what is still a mysterious and complex area. The result is a book which will both inspire and inform us all, and specifically those whose lives have been touched by illness, accident or loss.

Vass, Anthony (Editor)
Book Number: 31596
ISBN: 0803978006
London ; Thousand Oaks, Ca., USA Sage Publications 1996 8vo softcover 226pp index. very good. This original textbook provides an invaluable introduction to the required core knowledge, values and skills in social work today. Within the context of critical debate about these, a highly respected team of contributors focus their attention on three key areas:nnn· social work with children and families nnn· community care and social work with nnadultsnnn· probation and social work with offenders nnnCovering each of these topics in detail, the book will help readers to understand, as well as to apply, core requirements for competent practice.nnnOne of the most significant and innovative features of the text is that it offers a practical tool for readers to identify and monitor competences. Knowledge, values and skills are integrated to produce a set of competences, the main components of which are then shown in practice as problem-solving devices against which readers can evaluate their own understanding of competent and effective practice.nnnSocial Work Competences will be essential reading for all social work students as well as for practising social workers who wish to be completely up-to-date with the changes required under statutory and professional codes of practice.
