Abstract Revised to emphasise the current policy drive towards personalisation and service user participation in care management, the new edition of Social Work with Older People remains an insightful introductory text.
Deliberately taking a critical approach to guide readers to consider stereotypes of aging and work with older people, the new edition presents fundamental knowledge alongside thought-provoking and challenging debates. It offers a new chapter on safeguarding and has been updated to reflect current course requirements:
Part I introduces the theory, policy and legislation which influences social work contexts
Part II identifies core elements of practice, for effective interviewing, assessment, planning and intervention
Written by experienced and respected authors, this book will help readers understand the diverse experiences of later life, leading to positive and informed students and practitioners of social work.
