Need, Risk and Protection in Social Work Practice Summary

Need, Risk and Protection in Social Work Practice by Steve Hothersall

This book provides a detailed and comprehensive guide to working with risk. It begins by looking at notions of need, vulnerability and protection and looks at the theoretical concepts of each before applying them to practice. By using this combination of theory and practice the authors are able to integrate policy for a wide range of services users, from older people to children, families and younger adults. Case studies accompany and illustrate each method and the reader is invited to engage in a number of exercises and activities to consolidate learning.

Need, Risk and Protection in Social Work Practice Reviews

This 'user friendly' book will underpin the teaching and learning of social work theory and practice; the book considers risk and protection factors against background of capacity and incapacity issues. Case studies provided throughout the book link theory to practice. Lecturer, Anglia Ruskin University
