You may have seen at The Social Work Show our seminar on strengthening relational practice. We pride ourselves on our innovative approach to social work, working with Strengthening Practice we are acutely focused and aware of how the subtlety of our human behaviours and relationships can influence outcomes – with the profound learning being that the most important relations to build first are those with our colleagues.

Strengthening Relational Practice is not an over-arching or wrap-around approach, it is not one of a range of methods or tools, neither is it something that we choose for certain circumstances or situations. Relational Practice sits at the heart, at the core, of everything we do at Rochdale.
