Summary
"Emotions are at the core of health and social care work but what are they? Why do we have them? How do they affect our judgement, behaviour and actions? In this compelling and important book, leading author David Howe introduces readers to emotions and the fundamental part they play in effective and responsive professional practice." "Emotionally intelligent practitioners are not only likely to be more sensitive; they are also likely to be more resilient. This text begins by considering the origins of our emotions, how they develop across the lifespan, and how they affect us personally and interpersonally. It goes on to discuss the emotional wellbeing of both workers and their clients and examines how this can affect mental and physical health. Drawing on practice issues throughout, including emotional disorders and behavioural difficulties in both children and adults, Howe clearly demonstrates the deep links between emotional intelligence, the professional relationship and skilled practice." "Relevant to all areas of social work, this ground-breaking text is an essential read for all those who value the use of emotions in their own practice. Students taking modules in human growth and development, fitness for practice and professional development will find it indispensable."--BOOK JACKET
