Youth justice and social work
Structured around both of the UK's National Occupational Standards and the GSCC (General Social Care Council) Code of Practice, this book takes a practical approach to youth justice within social work programs focusing on social work in a multi-agency, multi-disciplinary youth offending team. Using case studies and research, the text helps readers develop the skills that support youth justice as well as to understand debates in youth justice policy and practice, including the competing issues of welfare and justice. The book is suitable for those on the social work degree as well as criminology and criminal justice students hoping to understand social work practice in a youth justice context.
