Law and the Social Work Practitioner, Paperback / softback Book

Law and the Social Work Practitioner Paperback / softback

Part of the Post-Qualifying Social Work Practice Series series

Paperback / softback


This book explores the main areas of social work law, including children, mental health and community care.

By investigating the meaning of law and some of its underlying value assumptions, it encourages practitioners to reflect on their actions and beliefs, helping them to avoid being a mere 'technician', and instead, become a competent practitioner.

This new text supports busy social workers studying for Post-Qualifying Awards.

Each chapter begins with an overview of the rationale for the teaching material provided and sets out clear learning objectives.

Case studies, exercises and recommendations for further reading can be found throughout the book.
