73 teachers who had participated in a school-based social work scheme completed a questionnaire which recorded their attitudes to the programme. all the teachers had been directly involved in consultations about pupil management with six specially trained social workers. The response of the teachers suggest that even with a limited amount of contact, social workers can make a positive contribution to teacher practice. The personal characteristics of the teachers did not appear to affect their responses.
