Recognition Matters

Good Morning,

The Local Practitioner Forum would like to share with you all an amazing piece of work that has been completed by the Family Group Decision Making Team in conjunction with a Practice Team Social Worker and Edinburgh University. This is about relationship based social work practice and a theory of practice called Recognition Theory. A film has been made about this and launched yesterday.

Although the subject matter focusses on the work in Communities and Families it is entirely relevant for H&SC practitioners. It follows the story of a young women with issues with drug use who transforms her life with the right support and manages to stop using drugs and be a mother to her baby.

The film is available on the link below on you tube.

Kind regards
