Using the Law in Social Work by Robert Johns
As a core module of the degree course, every student must have an in-depth understanding of the law in relation to social work. This second edition includes recent relevant legislation, for example, the Children Act 2004, which will fundamentally change the way children's services are delivered. Legislation applicable to community care, mental health, youth justice, children and families, and inspection of services is also included and analysed. This book is an interactive resource, which includes activities, case studies, and suggestions for further reading, keeping students up-to-date with the current interpretation of law.
