About the Book

Essential Law for Social Work Practice in Canada, second edition, is a guide to Canadian law and legal processes geared specifically to social workers. This core text examines all of the major legal situations social workers may encounter-from child abuse, family violence, or adoption issues to health care, mental illness, or immigration status-and ensures that they are well-versed in their own legal rights and obligations and know what to expect when testifying in court. Each chapter opens and closes with a realistic case example and provides a comprehensive list of legislation relevant to the area under discussion.

New to this second edition is a chapter focused on adoption law as well as an expanded pedagogical program, including chapter-opening learning objectives and chapter-ending discussion questions and list of key terms with definitions.

Readership : Essential Law for Social Work in Canada, second edition, targets students taking courses in law and social work, which are found in the upper-year levels at universities and university-colleges with social work programs. Similar courses are also found at the second- or third-year level in social services programs at community colleges.
