Broadening the agenda for social work, Julie Fish here provides an in-depth survey of how social workers involved with lesbian, gay, bisexual, or trans people can provide appropriate care across the lifespan, including working with children and older people. She also tackles the challenges presented by working with asylum-seekers and people with mental health or substance abuse issues. Grounding theoretical understandings of sexuality in current policy and practice, Social Work and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans People is an essential tool for social work students and practitioners.
Paul Willis, University of Swansea
"An outstanding and invaluable text for social work students and practitioners alike that brings together legal, historical, theoretical and human rights perspectives on sexuality and social work practice in the UK and internationally, and raises key messages from research and practice of relevance to a wide range of service user and carer groups."
Paul Bywaters, Coventry University
“This important, ground breaking book challenges social work with authority, knowledge, and quiet passion. The application of values, law, and international evidence to practice scenarios makes it an invaluable resource for students, practitioners, and lecturers.”--Paul Bywaters, Coventry University
Andrea Nagy | International Social Work
“Julie Fish provides an accessible and appealing work to practitioners and students who want to deal with lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) service users in an appropriate way. If anyone (still) hesitates to see the importance of the LGBT issue in social work, Fish’s chain of reasoning is convincing, pragmatic and straightforward.”
