Best Interests Assessors are social service practitioners who have been independently certified in accordance with the UK Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards to assess whether individuals are being denied their liberty. This book is the first in-depth handbook for Best Interests Assessors, offering practical guidance and setting that in the context of current law and how it relates to day-to-day practice. Case studies, legal summaries, exercises in practical decision making, and more make this an indispensable tool for students and practitioners alike.
Review Quotes
Robert Johns, University of East London
"Practitioners will relish a textbook so firmly grounded in real life practice. A most readable, attractive, and engaging guide written by people who clearly know what they are talking about."
Tamsin Waterhouse, University of Birmingham
"This handbook is long overdue. It explains the role of the BIA and provides some helpful hints and pointers. I would recommend it to both practitioners and students."
