Description

The new edition of this important handbook – formerly authored by Elaine Vayda and Mary Satterfield – continues in the tradition of the original in demystifying the law for the social worker. As with the previous edition, the fourth edition uses the family life cycle as an organizing principle which connects legal procedures to the life of the family as it moves through marriage, parenthood, normal events and specific crises, along the continuum from birth to old age. It reviews basic legal concepts, describes the court structure and examines trial procedures and rules of evidence as they affect social workers and their clients. New chapters have been added addressing Consent, Capacity and Substitute Decision-Makers; Mental Health and the Law; Financial Safety Nets; and Immigration.
