Working with Involuntary Clients: A Guide to Practice


Product Description

Published Australia, 2015 (3rd edition)
Now in its third edition, this book by  Monash University Professor of Social Work, Chris Trotter, shows how it is possible to work in partnership with involuntary clients and reconcile the two sometimes conflicting aspects of the role: the legalistic and the helping. Throughout the book the focus is on direct practice with guidance on clarifying roles, promoting pro-social values, dealing with issues of authority and establishing goals based on integrated, systematic and evidence-based approaches. It's a practical guide to working with individuals and their families in areas such as corrective services, child protection, mental health and residential care.

Chris Trotter is Professor in the Department of Social Work at Monash University.
