"The Social Worker's Guide to Children and Families Law" is an accessible, jargon-free guide to the key elements of the law that concern practising social workers in children and families teams in England and Wales. This resource for everyday practice includes explanations of the fundamental concepts of parental responsibility and human rights, and the detailed provisions of private and public law, including adoption. The legal issues raised by atypical families (such as those in gay relationships, of mixed heritage or with children or parents with disabilities) are also covered throughout the text. It includes bullet lists, checklists and charts for quick and easy reference, as well as highlighted points for practice and illustrative case scenarios to put the law into context. This guide will be an invaluable resource for practising social workers, as well as trainees, students and those studying for post-qualifying awards.
