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

by Julie Fish - £21.99  Policy Press (2012)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781847428035 | ISBN 10: 1847428037

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.
