Social Work with Adults Paperback / softback
Part of the Mastering Social Work Practice series
Social work with vulnerable adults is becoming increasingly centred on a key piece of legislation: the Mental Capacity Act.
The Act provides a framework for protecting the vulnerable while allowing those who may lack capacity to have certain safeguards enshrined in law. This book will help support students to learn two things: first, how the Mental Capacity Act operates and what its key principles are when applied to safeguarding adults; and second, what are the compassionate skills and values that need to be interwoven with legislative knowledge?
The authors show how these two principles interact and inform one another and how taking a person-centred approach to safeguarding vulnerable adults will mean better outcomes for the individual and our wider society.
