Books in the series tackle the complexities and dilemmas that practitioners face every day, by using a series of case examples. Each book focuses on a different area of social work, including vulnerable children, looked after children and mental health. The discussion within each book is built around case studies, in order to give clear examples of how an integrated knowledge base can be applied to practice. This series is essential reading for all post-qualifying social work students and social work practitioners. James Blewett is a registered social worker with 25 years’ experience in the care field.
