Regardless of their field of practice, all social workers must understand how legal issues impact the financial, psychological, emotional, and social concerns that their clients face. Yet legal issues are rarely integrated in social work education in a meaningful and practical way. Therefore, it is imperative that social workers gain the interdisciplinary knowledge of the laws and policies that affect their client populations.

This groundbreaking text broadens the traditional definition of forensic social work to include the legal issues encountered in all social work settings-family and social services, education, child welfare, mental health, addiction treatment, juvenile and criminal systems, and immigration services. Advocating a collaborative approach, this book will allow social workers to navigate the complex social and legal issues that affect their clients.

Includes discussions of the common legal issues all social workers face:

  • How to help meet basic client needs such as income, food, and shelter
  • Policies and practice with victims of violence
  • The relationship between school social work and the law
  • Assessment and treatment of child abuse and neglect
  • The legal needs of clients with mental health and addiction issues
  • Forensic practice in juvenile and criminal justice systems
  • Effective practice with immigrants, refugees, and victims of human trafficking

About the Author:

Tina Maschi, PhD, LCSW, ACSW, is an associate professor at the Fordham University Graduate School of Social Service where she teaches research, practice, and human rights and social justice. She has over 30 years of clinical social work and research experience in juvenile and criminal justice settings and community mental health settings. Dr. Maschi was a 2010 recipient of the Hartford Geriatric Social Work Faculty Scholars Program Award and a 2009 recipient of the Council on Social Work Education’s Faculty Scholar’s Award for the research project Promising Practices in Social Work Research Education. Her research and practice interests focus on human rights and social justice, forensic social work practice, cumulative trauma, resilience and well-being, justice involved aging people, and community-based research and evaluation.

Review:

"An outstanding contribution to the field that provides both social work scholars and practitioners with a unique compilation of forensic social work practice in diverse settings, framed within a collaborative forensic practice approach. At a time when forensic statistics demonstrate an overwhelming need for innovative prevention strategies as well as interventions that break the cycle of recidivism, this book provides expert guidance for social workers. Social work educators would be remiss not to integrate the text into their curricula as the content is critical to the preparation of all social work practitioners given the breadth of practice populations and settings that are impacted by forensics."
