Comprehensive in scope, Social Work Practice and the Law identifies and explains the essential knowledge, skills, values, and attitudes necessary for the attainment of collaborative critical competence when interacting with the legal system. It helps social workers develop the ability to reappraise, question, and challenge the law to best serve their clients. It also discusses ethical issues and current national and international trends, legal movements, and reforms that support and invite interprofessional, critically competent social work participation. Running throughout the volume is a collaborative case study that illustrates the application of theory to practice. Chapters also include legal, social work, and evidence-based resources.
