Title:
Practising social work law
Authors:
Braye, Suzy; Preston-Shoot, Michael ( 0000-0002-9347-0524 )
Abstract:
This book explores the relationship between the law and social work: the social context of welfare law, the powers and duties that social workers have, the practice dilemmas which confront them in applying the law, and the conflicting imperatives that underpin it. It helps practitioners retain and use legal knowledge by providing and applying a decision-making framework alongside the legal remedies applicable to situations encountered in practice, and by clarifying the values and skills for effective practice. In making connections between the law and social work, it emphasises an antidiscriminatory perspective and provides a tool for empowerment and change.
