This major new text meets the need for a book which goes beyond discussion of the legal and policy frameworks to bring together the knowledge base on safeguarding adults. The first part of the book provides critical analysis of key themes and concepts such as risk, abuse, harm and capacity and considers the challenges associated with intervention. Part Two examines how these ethical dilemmas and tensions apply to particular user groups and areas of practice. The text will be supported by a range of case examples to consolidate readers' knowledge and to highlight barriers to and ways of achieving effective practice.
