As more and more people and organisations are affected by the austerity agenda and cuts to public services, there is increased risk that the person-centred nature of safeguarding practice will be consumed by procedure and managerialism.With a unique focus on safeguarding both adults and children, this important text considers the professional responsibilities not just of social workers, but of practitioners across a range of Health, Police, Education and voluntary services who will often be involved in the process of protecting the more vulnerable members of society. Including in-depth analysis of the relevant research literature, as well as official evidence from Serious Case Reviews, the book will broaden readers' knowledge and understanding of the specialist skills required to practice safeguarding effectively, as well as of the need for agencies and professionals to communicate and work collaboratively in order to achieve the best possible outcomes.Using explicit learning objectives and reflective questions to encourage readers to think critically about their own assumptions in practice, the book provides coverage of topics such as:• The significance of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 in safeguarding adults• The complexities of safeguarding children in cases of parental substance misuse• The impact of social media and digitisation on safeguarding practice• The tensions involved in safeguarding practice within different cultures• The challenges of interprofessional safeguarding in relation to domestic abuseWritten by a team of expert authors, this impressive volume is a comprehensive sourcebook for students and practitioners alike.
