You Really Need to Read This

Slapheads: Social Workers – scarilly accurate portraits of social worker types from the perspective of a nurse working in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and sundry differently sane commenters.

Are you most like

Bigfoot Brenda So-called because sightings of her are more rare than of the Yeti. Continuously on study leave, annual leave, maternity leave or sick leave. Is rumoured to be booked in some time in September for a couple of days of actually-being-at-your-desk leave.

Or are you

Down with the Kids Duncan is apparently in his 50s, still insists on using all the “cool slang”, and trying desperately to “fit in” with clients who are in their 20s – as such insists on regaling you with stories of his misspent youth, how he tried weed once (but didn’t inhale), that he knows what certain body piercings are good for, and well yeah….

Feel free to post portraits of other social worker (or management) types here or over at Slapheads.

    I must admit this did make me smile – it is good that as a profession we can laugh at ourselves. There is not a lot else to laugh about at the moment either within the profession or more generally within the social care sector. I cannot at this precise moment think of another character to add to the two examples but I am sure I can think one up.

    Will make some suggestions after my jet lag.

    Nice find Brick 
