Thoughtful. Raw. Candid. These are Janet Knowles's reflections on her career as a social worker (spoiler alert: it's not like the movies). Whether you are working in the field yourself, a student, or simply exploring different career options, this book will allow you to peer behind the curtain and see what a job in social work really looks like.

Abuse. Reconciliation. Trauma. These stories are not for the faint of heart . . . but then, neither is a career in social work. Even in the most horrific situations, some of which are recounted within this book, social workers must find a way to cope and carry on. Janet shares from her own experiences with matter-of-fact (and at times, brutal) honesty, well-imbued with humour and advice for the next generation of social workers.
