Abstract

•There are compelling philosophical, policy and practice reasons to put relationships at the heart of social work
•The importance of relationships is increasingly recognised in ‘people work’ but especially in social work and social care, across all domains of practice
•Effective relationships are central to successful outcomes
•Current policy directions in Scotland are rooted in the need for effective personal/professional relationships
•Relationships are complex, requiring an awareness of ‘self’ and the negotiation of inter-personal boundaries
•Current practice cultures can make it difficult to practice in properly relational ways and would require a radical shift for issues of power, agency and status to be addressed
