‘Knowledge of law and ethics are both central to social work practice. This book explores the interaction and inter-relationship between the two, discusses the inevitable tension and conflict, and explains how they link to contemporary practice. It tackles head on a number of pertinent issues for social work emerging from law and ethics, including: freedom, choice, responsibility and protection. Jonathan Dickens brings many years of social work practice and academic experience to this subject and this is evident in the manner in which he capably engages with the issues. I highly recommend this text to social work students undertaking their qualifying training and for qualified social workers wishing to explore in more detail the relationship between ethics, law and social work practice.’ – Christine Cocker, Principal Lecturer in Social Work, Middlesex University, UK.
