This new text supports students undertaking post-qualifying social work awards in community care and working with vulnerable adults.
Recent government policy has ensured this area has seen plenty of change and this is reflected in the choice of topics which include welfare policy, mental health in later life and adult protection for vulnerable adults. The book is made up of self contained chapters to support students' learning, offering a number of differing and thought provoking viewpoints, enabling them to engage with the client group and to reflect upon their practice in a more meaningful way.
Well written, and up-to-date.
A good resource for any social work modules on adults." (Senior Lecturer, Anglia Ruskin University)
