Editorial Reviews

This book provides an outstanding resource for all social workers and social work students. Covered are the laws that have a direct and indirect impact on practice across a wide variety of settings. It provides practitioners with much needed assistance in how to conduct searches on relevant laws, how to be a witness and to testify in court, and timely information about all aspects of professional liability. In the last chapters, the role of law as it directly affects social workers in child welfare, schools, domestic violence, health and mental health care settings is reviewed. Social workers should not be without this valuable book in their libraries.
