law for social workers, 5 Oct. 2003
I am a third year social work student. I found Law for social work a invaluable resource to my learning.
This book is writen and presented at an understanderble level, rather than overloading you with the dynamics of legislation. although this text will give you a comprehensive knowledge base on which to practice from. it covers all recent legislative changes including the effects of the green paper on social work delivery, as well as changes around anti soical behavouir and social exclusion.
at the beging of each section it clearly lays out the overview of the chapter and objectives, further giving you an actual case study then walking you throgh this case study, demonstrating the ethical and value dilemas of the case.
the companion website is fantastic given you the opinions of hte writer in relation to cases
I reccomend this up to date text it is a valuble tool for all students on the new degree course.
