chapter
posted on 2018-05-03, 00:00 authored by Annabel TaylorAnnabel Taylor, Andrew FrostAndrew Frost
The criminal justice practice context confronts social work with some of its most significant challenges. Social work principles require an approach to practice that considers desistance from crime not just in terms of the psychology of individual persons but with respect to its inter-personal and social structural contexts. The youth justice sector of criminal justice represents a critical practice nexus for social work as it is the meeting point of welfare and justice.
