Good Practice in Safeguarding Adults provides an up to date and topical overview of developments in policy, guidance, legislation and practice in the area of adult protection.

The book aims to broaden thinking about adult abuse, assesses alternative models of practice such as criminal justice and welfare, and covers groups who may be overlooked, such as people with brain injuries, older prisoners and adults within the black and minority ethnic communities. Issues covered include domestic violence and honour-based crime, abuse in institutions, financial abuse, and risk assessment in adult protection. The book is illustrated throughout with case studies, and also gives a voice to the victims of adult abuse who can be forgotten in a working environment that emphasises target performance, indicators, standards, star ratings, paperwork and correct use of terminology.

This book will be essential reading for anyone working with vulnerable adults, including social workers, care managers, care workers, health care staff, police, probation officers, staff within the prison system, advocates, volunteers, training officers and students.
