Effective Staff Training in Social Care: From Theory to Practice
Psychology Press, 1999 - Social Science - 370 pages
Effective Staff Training in Social Care provides a theoretical framework for training and professional development, focusing on group learning in a social care context. It tackles the tensions and dilemmas of those engaged in training amidst a climate of change and a mixed economy of welfare and examines how these influence both the trainer and the learner.
Strategies for transfering learning to the workplace and models of evaluation are analysed in depth.
Effective Staff Training in Social Care enables the reader to reflect, analyse and develop their own training practice. This is essential reading for educators, trainers and managers working in social care settings.
