Social work practice in the twenty-first century is continually changing. Contemporary practitioners work in complex areas and have to do so quickly and competently. This text helps qualified social workers, as well as those about to qualify, to build on their initial studies in order to develop professionally. The volume considers not just what you need to know to practice, but how you develop in criticality and capability – in particular, how you can respond effectively in times of uncertainty and change to become more effective. It examines new roles, identities and contexts, including some international perspectives and the impact of globalisation. Each chapter discusses the contexts of practice (such as law, policies and theories); the contributions made both by those who practice social work and those who use its services; and the capabilities and skills that social workers need to develop in order to deal with complexity in social work. Making use of The Open University’s expertise in providing cutting edge but accessible course materials and its distinct approach to social work practice, this textbook includes underpinning knowledge, practical applications and critical reflexivity. It includes questions for further reflection and application , plentiful examples and suggestions for further reading. Aimed at the newly qualified practitioner and the developing professional, Professional Development in Social Work is written by a team of authors with extensive practice and teaching experience. It will be particularly useful to students undertaking post-qualifying training or in the final year of their qualifying studies.

While ethics has been addressed in the health care literature, relatively little attention has been paid to the subject in the field of social care. This book redresses the balance by examining theory, research, policy and practice in both fields. The analysis is set within the context of contemporary challenges facing health and social care, not only in Britain but internationally. Contributors from the UK, US and Australia consider ethical issues in health and social care research and governance; interprofessional and user perspectives; ethics in relation to human rights, the law, finance, management and provision; key issues of relevance to vulnerable groups such as children and young people, those with complex disabilities, older people and those with mental health problems and lifecourse issues - ethical perspectives on a range of challenging areas from new technologies of reproduction to euthanasia. This book is intended for academics, students and researchers in health and social care who need an up-to-date analysis of contemporary issues and debates. It will also be useful to practitioners in the public, private and voluntary sectors, including social workers, community workers, those working in the fields of disability and mental health and with older people.

**NEW EDITION FORTHCOMING FEBRUARY 2014 - for more information please email: [email protected] third edition draws upon the professional experiences of the law and legal systems, of over 30 academics and practitioners in the social sciences. Like its predecessor editions, it is written by and for social workers, and examines a wide range of practice settings and user populations where social work practice typically entails interaction with the law and lawyers.It begins with foundational chapters considering the place and influence of Aboriginality, of language and culture, and of ethics, on social work practice.The second section considers the legal context and its influence on social work practice. It particularly identifies key aspects of the legal system and its parameters that social workers need to consider as they seek to work alongside courts, tribunals and legal personnel, and examines the importance of record keeping, the place of administrative law in social work practice, and the evidentiary rules to which social workers will be subject as matters of concern are brought to legal attention.In the third section of this book, practice with a series of particular populations from across the community who typically have idiosyncratic interactions with the legal system, are considered. Here chapters variously examine such areas of practice as domestic violence, child sexual assault, adoption and post adoption practice, juvenile justice, the elderly and persons with a disability.In the fourth section a variety of contributors draw upon their experiences of working in specific jurisdictions - including those charged with decision making in relation to family law matters, social security entitlements, offenders, housing and homelessness, and the criminal justice system, refugee review processes, housing entitlements, and psychiatric care - to identify the difficulties and pathways through what at times seem to the inexperienced user to be an impenetrable maze of courts and tribunals. In the final section of the book, the different perspectives of lawyer and social worker, and their areas of common interest and commitments, and drawn together to conclude this volume.The third edition represents a complete revision of content from the earlier editions. In addition to a number of contributors to the earlier editions who have prepared new chapters in the light of contemporary practice, the new edition brings twelve new contributors and new chapters in relation to such areas as domestic violence, working with interpreters, social work and sexuality, housing rights, adoption and post adoption practice, family law, and social work and Indigenous Australians. It is a critical resource for the social work student and practitioner, and indeed for practitioners generaly in the human services area.
