In 2007 Adrian Ward was commissioned by the National Centre for Excellence in Residential Child Care to write a paper on Leadership in Residential Child Care. The paper is available from the NCB website.
Adrian Ward has now produced a revised and greatly expanded version of this influential paper, making it available in hardback for the first time.
Covering a wide range of themes from leadership style to the unconscious dynamics of leadership, this is a highly personal and passionately-argued account of the critical role of the manager or head of home, focusing also on the leader’s own needs for support and consultation.
It is illustrated throughout with vivid examples of real-life incidents in residential child care, bringing the material to life in a memorable, dramatic and sometimes humorous way.
The book is available to buy from Smokehouse Press of Norwich
