Work within the human services is increasingly influenced by rights-based thinking, and this book offers advice for the practitioner on how to translate abstract rights theory into their everyday practice.
The book outlines the theory that underpins human rights and outlines the ethical debates and dilemmas that frequently surround them. It also provides a practical model that outlines how to embed human rights theory within practice and the professional decision-making process. Drawing extensively on real-life case examples, the book includes chapters on rights-based work with different client groups including offenders, people with intellectual disabilities, immigrants and refugees, and children and families.
This important book will be a useful source of guidance and advice for professionals working across the human services, including those in social care, health and justice settings.

The book would be useful for students and practitioners looking to explore practice issues from an international perspective and different societal responses and structures to similar problems, such as the use of corporal punishment. The structure and lay out of the chapters is such that it allows the reader to dip in and out depending on their particular interests. It would be a useful addition to any library. -- The Higher Education Academy Social Policy and Social Work Subject Centre
