Abstract

In the paper authors present a reflection inspired by the relational social work method. Relational Social Work (RSW) has developed bespoke theoretical and methodological perspectives that provide a more precise idea of what in practice it means 'to work within relationships'. RSW offers a theoretical framework to understand and utilize the dynamic relationship between those who help and those needing help, and it offers a novel interpretation of the role and function of practitioners. The key concepts presented could support social workers in guiding and facilitating coping network aimed to cope with life difficulties.
