Good Practice with Vulnerable Adults, Paperback / softback Book

Good Practice with Vulnerable Adults Paperback / softback

Edited by Jacki Pritchard

Part of the Good Practice in Health, Social Care and Criminal Justice series


Good Practice in Social Work 9This is a practical and trans-disciplinary guide for professionals working with vulnerable adults, who include the frail elderly, those with mental health problems or physical disabilities, learning disabilities or serious physical illness. The contributors address key problems and dilemmas in working to protect these groups from abuse, and to support those who have already experienced abuse or neglect.

They consider the procedural implications of the latest Department of Health guidance on working with vulnerable adults, and make practical suggestions for working with both victims and abusers. Highlighting the importance of interagency working, the contributors show how the related fields of child abuse, domestic violence and adult abuse can come together to promote increased understanding and good practice.

With its emphasis on effective practice and contributions from social work, general medical practice, criminal justice and adult protection, this collection will be an indispensable resource for students, practitioners, service managers and policy makers in all sectors.
