Product Description

Review

Fantastic book as it deals effectively with three huge topics that are inextricably linked to be relevant to both practitioners and academics.

About the Author

Before moving into social work education, Robert Johns worked for a number of years in a range of social work roles, predominantly in the public sector. His specialisms were youth justice and court-work, representing the interests of children involved in care proceedings. Academically, his major abiding interest has been social work law but he has also taught social policy and social work values and ethics, hence his latest book, Ethics and Law for Social Workers. Currently, he teaches  at the University of East London, where has been Head of Social Work and programme leader for the qualifying MA offered in conjunction with the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust. He is the author of Using the Law in Social Work, now in its sixth edition, Social Work, Social Policy and Older People and, most recently,  Capacity and Autonomy.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Debby on 23 Mar. 2011
Format: Paperback
This is a well-written and accessible book which will be of particular interest to Social Work degree students but also to anyone with an interest in how the changing political climate has influenced the development of social work in the UK from Edwardian times to the present day. As the title informs us, this theme is exemplified with relation to older people and it addresses the assumptions and beliefs underlying current attitudes and policies and provides food for thought with relation to the problem of the rapidly ageing population.

Although it is mainly focussed on England, it also addresses international issues, especially as the various phases of the English experience can be exemplified in current policies in countries around the world.
