Texas Law for the Social Worker 2016 provides licensed social workers, social work students and professors with the key legal and policy issues specific to the state of Texas today. Issues directly affecting practitioners and their students have been carefully selected statutes, case laws, and official archives of the Attorney General Opinions and Open Records Opinions. No other compilation of such critical, up-to-date material exists for the state of Texas. New up-to-date material belonging to the 81st Legislative Session!

Quickly and easily find information that would usually take hours to track down.

Practitioners and students alike will find comprehensive codes related to:
*Civil Practice and Remedies
*Education
*Family
*Human Resources
*Insurance
*Penal
*Health and Safety
*Probate
*Administration
*Occupations

Four case laws--reported in their entirety--include these landmark decisions:

  • Thapar v. Zezulka--an excellent discussion of the duty to warn/duty to protect doctrine in Texas
  • Abrams v. Jones--a ground-breaking decision on confidentiality between a therapist, a child client and the child's parents
  • Jaffee v. Redmond--a timely example of the complicated issue of psychotherapy notes in agency settings
  • B.K v. Cox--duty to report and derived judicial immunity

“This book is a must-have for every social work student in field and every social worker in practice! Staying up-to-date on laws affecting our work is crucial!"
