Youth Justice and Social Work Summary

Youth Justice and Social Work by Paul Dugmore

Structured around the National Occupational Standards, this book takes a practical approach to youth justice within social work programmes, focusing on social work in a multi-agency, multi disciplinary youth offending team. Using case studies and research, this text helps readers to develop skills that support youth justice, as well as to understand debates in youth justice policy and practice, including the competing issues of welfare and justice. It is suitable for those on the social work degree as well as criminology and criminal justice students hoping to understand social work practice in a youth justice context.
