Social Work on Trial : The Colwell Inquiry and the State of Welfare Hardback
Part of the BASW/Policy Press Titles series
The public inquiry that followed the death of Maria Colwell had profound implications for the developing profession and practice of social work in the UK.
This book describes the politics, professional concerns and public interest - both local and national - that surrounded the inquiry and its aftermath, and shows how the concerns of this landmark child abuse case have still failed to find a satisfactory resolution today.
Social work, then and now, remains 'on trial'.
