Integrating Human Service Law, Ethics and Practice interprets the law for human service students to prepare them for practice. The text fully integrates law and ethics throughout, to provide a thorough knowledge of the Australian legal landscape and an understanding of human service ethics. It explores the place of law in human service work; the general legal obligations, rights, duties and regulations of workers; and considers a number of areas of substantive law relevant to service delivery with different populations and jurisdictions. It continues to include 'Practice Questions and Response' boxes and 'Legal and Ethical Myths and Realities' boxes, which clarify contested or confusing issues in practice. This third edition more explicitly addresses the interaction between law and ethics in practice, and incorporates more material on professional ethics in all chapters.
