Summary

Written by an author team educated in both the law and social work, this book acquaints readers with major state and federal laws, regulations, and court opinions that directly affect social work practice. LAW IN SOCIAL WORK PRACTICE teaches readers to understand how to work within the legal system to benefit clients and further client interests, recognize certain client problems as legal, work effectively with lawyers, and learn how the law shapes and restricts clients' actions. It also addresses how the law regulates social work practice, and how to recognize and respect the rights of clients and others affected by a practitioner's actions.
