Code: BH/18/0172 Centre for Social Work Practice Innovations Seminar

The presence of fear and anxiety in social care practice; creating a space to think and feel.

 

There is a steady retreat, in research and practice, from considering the emotionally disturbing experiences encountered in daily practice with children and their parents. Despite social work becoming the subject of increasing research expertise, little is known about the intimate emotional experiences of social workers as they engage with families.  Systems psychodynamic theory and the methodical reflective practices it underpins (Rustin and Bradley, 2008) offers a suitable framework in which to consider practicing and researching in this emotionally complex field. This seminar will describe and share findings of a small doctoral study designed to provide a sustained reflective space (Work Discussion Group) to social workers in order to closely explore the reality of their practice experience.  This study revealed that a combination of task related anxiety and anxiety associated with making a mistake and being found out, left workers feeling frightened.  In response, they took up a position of psychic retreat (Steiner, 1993).  This necessary defence enabled them to maintain some distance from the guilt and despair associated with the work, but offered no real security.
