Working with defences in social work: a knowledge, skills and relationship-based approach

Presentaion slides from the BASW Day Workshop Monday 20th October 2014

This workshop aimed to look at the knowledge and skills needed when working in situations where conscious (aware) and unconscious (unaware) defences are evident. It began with an overview of how defences are defined and outline why, as human beings, we can easily become defensive.
