DESCRIPTION

A thorough understanding of the law and legal processes relating to their area of practice is essential for all social workers; at any time the social worker must know what options for intervention are, or are not, available to them and how such intervention may be legally achieved. Social Work Law is a comprehensive, practical and accessible guide to the legal framework that any social worker or student of social work needs to know.
