Overview

This work is designed for practitioners and carers in social-welfare services to help them make the links between the law and their work. Using case studies and exercises, the book aims to help readers to develop competence in the knowledge, values and skills of using the law in relation to practice. By combining anti-oppressive practice and the principles which inform the legislation used in the delivery of services in the social-care field, the book points the way to a new practice.

The authors draw on their personal and work experiences to understand the issues of power and oppression and how the law can be used to inform the development of anti-oppressive practice.
