Long regarded as the standard text for classroom use and an
invaluable reference for agency administrators, social work
supervisors, line clinicians, and private practitioners, Social
Work Malpractice and Liability has now been updated to include
new material on the revised NASW Code of Ethics, recent court
decisions related to social work malpractice and liability,
boundary issues and dual relationships, and how social workers can
conduct an "ethics audit" in the workplace.
After introducing the concepts of negligence, malpractice, and
liability, Frederic Reamer turns to the subject of risk management.
Using recent cases, he describes a wide variety of problems related
to privacy and confidentiality, improper treatment and delivery of
services, impaired practitioners, supervision, consultation and
referral, fraud and deception, and termination of service,
concluding with practical suggestions for social workers named as
defendants in lawsuits.
