This publication brings a valuable new text for social workers and wider professionals working with people and in the arena of Adult safeguarding. A collection that allows for some challenge to thinking and practice reflection is always welcomed especially at a time where social work must embed human rights and civil liberties in all that it does. This book can only aid those discussions and professional development.
