Accountability and intervention

Accountability and intervention is suitable for use towards the end of law learning but before summative assessment. It explores the impact of law on how social workers work, in particular: how legal rules influence the process of decision-making (rather than content); and how social work values influence our approach.

This learning object presents a case study where users are asked to listen and read key stakeholder's viewpoints and explore the legal issues involved. Users are then asked to explore a series of dilemmas from practice and explore the differing viewpoints of key stakeholders. Please note that there is a text only version of this learning object, which facilitates use of the resource on slow connections or with assistive software.
