This book throws light on legal and courtroom processes and procedures, encouraging readers to see involvement with the courts as a positive element of their practice, rather than something to be afraid of. By encouraging social workers to develop the skills to perform confidently in the court environment, they will be better able to support service users faced with court involvement. This guide is presented within an integrated framework of law and social work and gives a unique opportunity to demystify courtroom and legal procedures and to identify the skills required of social workers involved in court work.
