We outlined the main theories and approaches psychology can offer social workers in their everyday practice with service users (Chapters 1 and 2), in developing skills in individual interviewing and group counselling/therapy (Chapters 3 and 6) and self-care (Chapters 4 and 5). Here we examine the way that social workers themselves are subject to the influence of psychological forces in the organisation of their daily working lives. In this chapter we apply psychological knowledge to social work settings and contexts of practice.
