This ebook illustrates the day to day work of providing social services to adolescents: it describes the context of that task, its complexities, it's limitations, some of its successes and failings. More specifically it focuses on the role of assessment as part of the social work process, comparing specialist assessments with those undertaken routinely by district-based social workers.
