Have you faced a legal issue in your private practice?
Do you manage an agency in which legal concerns arise?
Where do you go for information and education about legal matters that pertain to social work?
Now you can go to NASW Massachusetts Chapter’s Social Work Legal Issues Handbook, which covers a variety of topics including but not limited to confidentiality, clinical issues, professional liability and regulation of the profession, and litigation. Drawn from the questions raised by NASW members and considered essential for informed social work practice, this new handbook summarizes legal issues both relevant and in some cases critical for social workers. Every bookshelf should have a copy of this handbook.
