Example text

The social workers here use the language of the scientific discourse to qualify their statements. The role of explanation Whilst for some social workers the process described above, of getting a feel for a case through in-depth knowledge, will mainly reside in the spheres of the family’s current and future situations, some social workers will also attempt to reach an explanation of how the family’s difficulties arose. Howe (1996a) has argued that current social work practice is mainly situated at the ‘surface’, with a concentration on evidence and behaviour rather than explanation.

However, with a few exceptions (for example, Lee and Piachaud, 1992; White, 1998b), there has been little attention paid to the issue of time in social work practice. In the area of social work assessment, aspects of time become central, yet ‘Careful analysis of the various ways in which time affects the choice or decision process has yet to be undertaken’ (Tallman and Gray, 1990: 420). This claim remains valid over a decade later. Many aspects of time might be seen as relevant to in-depth assessments and the scope of these is briefly surveyed here.

Whilst the assertion of rights has a potentially powerful influence on fighting the limitations brought about by deprivation and oppression, it tends to ignore the inter-relational aspects of human encounters. Themes of depth of relationship, and objectivity, recur throughout this book. Later in this chapter it will be seen that the dominant discourse of scientific observation emphasises rationality and abstract aspects of assessments, whilst the discourse of reflective evaluation places more emphasis on the close engagement of the client.
