We are now getting close to our idea of the compleat social worker. The previous 14 chapters have been looking at some of the divisions that have pulled social work apart. But rather than look for a simple reconciliation between the two sides, we have gone for synergy. Nature interacting dynamically with nurture offers far more possibilities than simply arguing that perhaps both views have merit. Feelings inform thought every bit as much as thought helps manage feelings. Social work’s techniques can only take hold if there is a social work relationship.
