9780826148919: Law and Social Work Practice: A Legal Systems Approach, Second Edition (Springer Series on Social Work)

This completely rewritten and updated new edition of a practical text continues to provide a firm introduction to law and legal processes and their relation to social work practice. Using Clinton's welfare reform act of 1996, Albert provides a conceptual framework to illustrate how socio-legal problems emerge in the welfare state, and presents the skills base necessary for effective social work response. A new section on socio-legal issues highlights many fields where social worker-lawyer partnerships can occur, such as civil rights and advocacy, the death penalty, liability for neglect in nursing homes, informed consent and medical treatment, and much more. Filled with techniques for reading and understanding judicial opinion, legislative statues, and bills, this new edition will appeal to all professors of law and social work courses, as well as courses on the welfare state.

About the Author:

Professor Raymond Albert, JD, MSW, is Director of the Law and Social Policy Program at Bryn Mawr College Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research, where he has been working with students and colleagues to make sense of socio-legal issues since 1980. in addition to this second edition, Professor Albert has written chapters dealing with legal aspects of social services, such as "Legal Aspects of High Tech Home Care" in Current Practices in High-Tech Home Care, and "Legal Issues in Custodial Grandparenting" in Grandparents Raising Children: Theoretical, Empirical, and Clinical Perspectives. He is also the co-editor of the Special Issue on "Confidentiality" for the Journal of Law and Social Work and authored a chapter therein, "Deconstructing Jaffe v. Redmond." Professor Albert's research interests, in addition to those built around the nexus between law and social work, include the "legalization" of issues effecting the elderly, and poverty dynamics and working class black males.
