Summary
"Fear can have significant and complex effects on the lives of those working in health and social care, yet it is rarely discussed or investigated. Drawing on powerful first-hand accounts, this book explores the fears experienced when working in child protection, mental health, and with marginalized groups of people, and suggests how these fears can be understood and managed." "Offering innovative and creative ways of thinking about and coping with fear, this book is essential reading for health and social care professionals, trainers, and managers who need to be aware of issues surrounding fear and anxiety within their organizations."--BOOK JACKET
