Case Management in the Light of Postmodern Collaborative Approach


Abstract:

The aim of this paper is to show some elements of postmodern collaborative practices that may respond to contemporary dillemmas in case management in social work. I start with a brief description of philosophical background of collaborative practices, its basic principles and applications. I describe case work in a similar way, including the context of its developments both internationally and in Czech Republic. Subsequently, I show possible connections of both approaches. I refer to drawbacks of case management identified by Cnaan (1994) and I describe possibilities of collaborative practices when addressing these drawbacks.


Keywords:
