Is there a UK professional association which a social worker working in
a community mental health team might normally belong to?

If not then is there a general professional association for social
workers?

It's not off topic. Many here are in serious need of therapy.

The only one which comes to mind is the GSCC.

there used to be BUSWE, British Union of Social Work Employees.

Based in Manchester, not sure if they are still active or have been
subsumed into one of the big public sector unions by now.

Certainly some of them are in a job that allows them to apply their own
prejudices and their own pet theories about families.
With some actions being not quite legal (or even illegal).

There are good ones - there are bad ones. Just can be the sort of job that
many people don't hear about the results obtained.

Over the last 18 years I've worked some jobs where I deal with social
workers and those that have been using social workers.
Plus some volunteer help for those social workers don't or aren't allowed to
do anything with.

ROFL.

The top-post - bottom-post row is a frequent returner. :-/

Either practise is supposed to be tolerated here: All I would suggest is
that when the first answer sets the style, maybe the rest should 'follow
suit' for that thread.

I used to be a proponent for top-posting - but am less inclined to the
cart-before-the-horsiness of it now. What is far more irratating (....?) is
posting that is inadequately trimmed.

But overall, IMHO, there is no need to crank out the pedantry of supposed
Usenet 'convention' when one is at liberty to ignore a post that one feels
is not syntactically stimulating! :-(

I block posters for much more serious transgressions of decency! I think
one has got to keep a sense of proportionality in what one sees it necessary
to complain about - especially in a disability forum - where communication
can be a big issue for the poster.

Cheers,

Pete.
