La aprobación de la Ley Orgánica 5/2000, de 12 de enero, reguladora de la responsabilidad penal de los menores, supuso la plasmación de un programa político-criminal en relación con la delincuencia juvenil marcado por la asunción de una óptica esencialmente educativa y preventivo especial. De entre todas las decisiones adoptadas en este sentido, la potenciación de la mediación como mecanismo de solución de conflictos se presentó a priori como una de las principales apuestas de la Ley en su intento de desjudicializar el conflicto ahí dónde este pudiera resultar contraproducente para la educación del menor. A pesar de ello, la experiencia aplicativa posterior nos ha mostrado como estas facultades desjudicializadoras has presentado una virtualidad menor de los que en un principio se esperaba. El presente estudio sobre la mediación en el Derecho penal de menores aborda el estudio de esta Institución desde las distintas perspectivas involucradas, abordando el análisis de sus fundamentos teóricos y de la normativa (internacional y nacional) aplicable, así como el estudio de las experiencias de Derecho comparado. Finalmente, el trabajo ahora ve la luz, expone los resultados obtenidos con el programa piloto de mediación de menores que viene realizándose en el ámbito territorial de la Sección de Menores de la Fiscalía Provincial de Alicante.

Since the third edition of Practising Social Work Law published in 2010, new legislation – such as the Care Act 2014, the Equality Act 2010, and the Children and Families Act 2014 – has had a significant impact on the social work profession. Practitioners must not only know the law; they must also have a critical appreciation of its implications for human rights, civil liberties and social justice. They must exercise their powers and duties in ways underpinned by professional ethics, in a context of severe resource constraint and under constant public and political scrutiny. Now going into its fourth edition, Practising Social Work Law seeks to build social workers' confidence in legal interpretation and implementation. It focuses on promoting practitioners' knowledge and skills in recognising, locating and articulating legal issues, and using the law to inform practice standards and deliver positive outcomes for service users. This timely, fully revised new edition of this well-respected text combines up-to-date statute, case law and guidance with extended practice examples and questions for reflection, making it an invaluable resource for students, practitioners and educators alike.

This second edition of "Children's needs - parenting capacity" updates the original exploration of the research literature in the light of legal and policy changes in England and findings from more recent national and international research. The edition has also been expanded to cover parental learning disabilities and how it may impact on parenting and children's health and development. The findings show that these parenting issues affect children differently depending on their age and individual circumstances. While some children grow up apparently unscathed, others exhibit emotional and behavioural disorders. This knowledge can inform practitioners undertaking assessments of the needs of children and their families and effective service responses. This publication is essential reading for practitioners, managers and policy makers concerned with improving the outcomes for children and families who are experiencing such problems.

This fourth edition of Community Care Practice and the Law has been fully updated to reflect the rapid and continuing legal, policy and practice changes affecting community care. It provides comprehensive and jargon-free explanations of community care legislation, as well as other areas of law directly relevant to practitioners, including the NHS, disabled facilities grants and housing adaptations, asylum and immigration, mental capacity, human rights, disability discrimination, health and safety at work and negligence – and a range of legal provisions relevant to the protection and safeguarding of adults. Apart from the burgeoning legal case law and ombudsman investigations, changes from the last edition include coverage of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, legal implications of 'self directed care' and 'individual budgets', changes to direct payments and 'ordinary residence' determinations. In particular, new guidance applies to the high profile issue of NHS continuing health care. The book is an essential guide for practitioners and managers in both the statutory and voluntary sectors, policy makers in local authorities and the NHS, advocates, lawyers and social work students.

Now in its fourth edition Understanding Social Work continues to be the essential introduction to this complex field of practice.
