Effective social work practice relies on good understanding of the law along with the skills to use this knowledge well. This essential reader provides a wide-ranging thematic account of social work practice in Scotland, making critical links between concepts, the contexts of practice and first-hand experiences of Scottish social work law. Reflecting the pace of change in the law since the previous edition, the book combines fully updated chapters by some of the original authors, with newly commissioned pieces. Written by leading academics and practitioners in the field, it captures key developments in Scottish legislation and the implications for practitioners, covering important subjects such as: a- Service user and carer rights a- Legal and social work values a- Accountability a- Effective assessment a- Safeguarding, risk and protection a- Youth and adult criminal justice a- Partnership, participation and advocacy a- Delivery of personalised services. Social Work and the Law in Scotland is core reading for all those undertaking academic study or professional practice within the field. It is also a key resource for anyone looking to update their knowledge on the nature and development of the ever-evolving legislative landscape of Scotland.
