Seen and Heard
This book deals with a rarely debated subject with which social workers and the courts are too often confronted. The author addresses a topic which could at first glance appear pretty grim but her approach is inclusive and refreshingly right-based, offering a constructive and empowering discussion.
I found this book thought-provoking and a welcome challenge to established ideas about vulnerability... The book is rich with excerpts from interviews and examples from Hollomotz's research, adding depth to the narrative and theory. It is a useful resource for anyone working in safeguarding adults, who wants to empower, just protect the service user.
