When you study social work law, it can feel like there are many more questions than answers. Practising Social Work Law is here to help.
Arguing that knowledge of the law alone is insufficient, this book identifies the connections between law and social work to provide readers with the critical knowledge needed for competent practice. It analyzes the practice-based dilemmas social workers often encounter, and clarifies the values, skills and understanding needed to make sound professional decisions and judgements.
This is a fully revised and extended edition of a well respected text. It includes new material in every chapter, incorporating research-informed commentary and up-to-date case law and guidance. Written by two leading authorities in the field, it is an invaluable resource for students, practitioners and educators alike.
