Understanding the way in which people develop before birth, as babies, children and adolescents through to young, middle and older adulthood, and towards death is fundamental to good social work practice. With this knowledge, the social worker can establish effective partnerships with people who use social work services, with other professionals, and when using the law to protect service users' rights.

This book uses case studies throughout to illustrate and draw out key points, and to aid and reinforce learning. It also provides summaries of comtemporary research, suggestions for further reading, and current government guidance and policy documents.
