What’s inside this edition?
RPP 32(3) features an evaluation of the impact on values and attitudes of students of a social work curricula module relating to substance misuse and working with substance misusers; a paper conceptualising an alternative ‘blueprint’ approach to assessment/support planning and methods of resource allocation in adult social care departments; a report of the application of reciprocal role valorisation (RRV) to Family Group Conferences in New Brunswick, Canada; in addition to the findings of a participatory qualitative research study focusing on the role unpaid carers play in the recovery of people with mental ill-health.

Read also a review of a significant book by a prominent campaigning figure, Peter Beresford, who is himself a valued contributor to RPP, most recently on personalisation.
