Abstract

Protecting and Promoting Client Rights examines the inherent tensions within the family assessor role when there is no overarching compulsory regulatory body in social work. The book highlights why it is necessary to understand how social workers adhere to social work standards of practice within a family assessor role (AASW, 2018). It explores how social workers who undertake the role of forensic family assessors can meet the expected AASW Standards of Practice while also protecting and promoting the rights of their family court clients.

Key Features
- Presents the qualifications, training, tools and processes used by family assessors
- Examines the challenges social workers encounter when applying the standards for practice, including application of knowledge to practice, values, ethics and professionalism
- Focuses on the roles of social work professionals within a forensic family law context
