Using the Law in Social Work Summary

Using the Law in Social Work by Robert Johns

Now in its fourth edition, this well-established core textbook looks at social work law in practice, focusing on key areas such as human rights, mental health, services to children and families, safeguarding, court work, youth justice and community care. Now fully revised to include information on the Mental Health Act 2007, extensions to the Mental Capacity Act 2005, new guidance on implementation of the Children Act 1989 and care proceedings, as well as changes to the tribunal system, this text is essential reading for all social work students.

Using the Law in Social Work Reviews

"A deservedly popular text that students find engaging and accessible. Rapidly becoming an indispensible addition to the social work literature." ( Lecturer, University of Bradford.)

About Robert Johns

Before moving into social work education, Robert Johns worked for a number of years in a range of social work roles, predominantly in the public sector. His specialisms were youth justice and court-work, representing the interests of children involved in care proceedings. Academically, his major abiding interest has been social work law but he has also taught social policy and social work values and ethics, hence his latest book, Ethics and Law for Social Workers. Currently, he teaches at the University of East London, where has been Head of Social Work and programme leader for the qualifying MA offered in conjunction with the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust. He is the author of Using the Law in Social Work, now in its sixth edition, Social Work, Social Policy and Older People and, most recently, Capacity and Autonomy.
