Product description

This textbook will provide formal knowledge such as legislative and policy frameworks for students and practitioners seeking to understand a range of interventions but will be written by service users and carers who have been on the receiving end of each intervention. There has been a significant shift in recent years within social work practice to one which recognises the expertise of people with a lived experience. Social work programmes are required to embed service user involvement into the curriculum. In meeting the professional standards such as the Professional Capabilities Framework, knowledge and skills statements and regulatory body codes of conduct, students and social workers are required to take into account service user perspectives and to collaborate with service users to achieve positive outcomes.
