Law for Social Workers has been supporting social work students and professionals for over 20 years. The ideal book to see you through both your course and career, the new edition features contributions from a practising social worker and provides the perfect balance of accessible explanation and practical insight.
The new edition continues to provide an accurate, jargon-free account of the law social workers need to know, with helpful diagrams and case studies included throughout to explain areas of difficulty and ensure understanding for students and professionals at all levels.
A new section, 'The Social Worker's Toolkit', offers practical advice on topics such as going to court, preparing evidence, and writing reports, as well as a quick-reference guide to key topics, and provides the ideal support while on placement or in the workplace.
The book is also accompanied by a fully interactive Online Resource Centre featuring updates on recent cases and changes to legislation, guidance on answering exercises in the book, a glossary explaining essential legal terminology, and further reading guidance. For lecturers, resources include video podcasts, powerpoint slides, and discussion notes, plus a test bank of over 200 multiple choice questions for class-testing.
With its comprehensive coverage and practical focus, Law for Social Workers will be an invaluable guide throughout your degree and as you enter the workplace, equipping you with the essential legal knowledge to give you confidence to practice.
