Safeguarding Across the Life Span

Safeguarding Across the Life Span

October 2020 | 296 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Considering safeguarding across the life span and placing it within a multiagency context, this book gives students a grounding to the key issues in safeguarding today, highlighting the key skills and knowledge necessary for effective practice along the way. It includes reference to the latest legislation, skills for practice, a breadth of contexts and service-user groups, drawing on a range of case studies, activities, reflective questions and recommending reading from across health and social care. Locating age specific concerns in context and divided into sections which cover every stage of life, it addresses questions of culture, gender and problems frequently encountered in practice and what these mean for safeguarding and law.
