Social Work and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans People : Making a Difference

Social Work and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans People : Making a Difference

Description

This important textbook makes a timely contribution to international agendas in social work with lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) people. It examines how practitioners and student social workers can provide appropriate care across the lifespan (including work with children and families and older people) and considers key challenges in social work practice, for example asylum, mental health, and substance misuse. Drawing on practice scenarios, the book takes an enquiry-based learning approach to facilitate critical reflection. Its distinctive approach includes:
* use of the concepts of the Professional Capabilities Framework for social work
* key theoretical perspectives including human rights
* structuring of the text around the framework of the UK National Occupational Standards for Social Work
* student-friendly features including key questions and exercises
* a complete glossary of key terms and concepts
* examination of the UK policy and legislative context
It is informed by international research in social work with LGBT people
The book is essential reading for students on qualifying social work programmes and practitioners in statutory, voluntary and independent sectors.
