Dr Carole Smith – University of Manchester
Within Social Work, a solid understanding of the law is essential. Written with the non-lawyer in mind, Social Work Law presents a practical and accessible guide to the legal framework that any social worker, or student of social work needs to know. The author provides a balanced account of the law as applied to children, families and vulnerable adults alike, and pays particular attention to the key areas of: the dynamic relationship between the law and social work practice; the crucial role of anti-discriminatory practice; and the continued growth in the importance of the Human Rights Act, 1998.
Social Work Law blends a lively writing style with a variety of tools designed to help consolidate and test your knowledge, including:
all of which create an invaluable learning resource for any student of Social Work, at undergraduate or postgraduate level.
