Description:

The major focus of the book is on social work practice that intersects with the legal system. An emphasis is placed on the knowledge and skills of collaboration that is need across the field of practice. A conceptual model, entitled the Social Justice Systems perspective, places an emphasis on the two pronged approach to practice, which is to increase well-being and social functioning, and improve social justice outcomes. All social work fields of practice are thus implicated in this model: social services, education, child welfare, juvenile and criminal justice, and immigration. This book takes a generalist approach to forensic social work that moves beyond a narrow definition that involves only victims and offenders in the juvenile and criminal justice system. It includes practice arenas that involve civil law issues, such as adoption, divorce, disabilities rights, etc.
