In recent years, several developments have stimulated new ways of thinking about the social worker's "self" or "selves?" in all aspects of practice. The focus on practice with diverse populations and the emphasis of ?anti-oppressive? practice have highlighted elements of the worker's relationship to their clients. The objective of this book is threefold: 1. To explore the adequacy of the concept ?use of self? for clinical practice. 2. To provide grounded accounts of practitioner's use of self in critical practice approaches. 3. To broaden the scope of the concept of critical use of self to fields of service where it is under-theorized, for example, community work, addictions, and corrections.
