Welcome to Social work for lazy radicals: relationship building, critical thinking and courage in practice. It is very good indeed that the word ‘lazy’ in the title did not stop you from wanting to read this book, although you may be intrigued by the concept of lazy radical social work practice. I know that social workers, as a group, are not known for their laziness – quite the opposite in fact. Demanding caseloads, difficult and stressful work and often working beyond the call of duty are elements of a more accurate appraisal of social work practice. What exactly is meant by lazy radical practice, then? This chapter will answer that question and by then end of it, you will understand exactly how reading this book is going to help you attain, maintain or develop confident, value-based and courageous practice.
