Does social work need to be regulated? What are the benefits and drawbacks of social work regulation, and how might social work regulation be improved? Regulating Social Work: A Primer on Licensing Practice explores professional licensure by clearly delineating steps toward its achievement and discussing the tensions and controversies present in the process. The development of licensure and regulation is examined both locally and globally. But most importantly, Regulating Social Work gives readers the resources and information to understand how regulation might be influenced or improved in their area and how they can become involved in making such changes. Features: Uses the social work professional-in-environment perspective to make licensure controversies and complexities more understandable; contributions from England and Asia provide a global perspective and offer topics for practicums; includes study questions, a literature review, and resources and references.
