Complex Dilemmas Within Applied Social Care

This is the first text of its kind to deal exclusively with applied social work ethics. It focuses on an eclectic mix of difficult moral questions or issues encountered in much modern day practice. It is therefore not theoretically driven with some practical elements attached, but is instead is a practice-based book, where any theory introduced is linked to tangible practice situations. It is also thought-provoking, controversial in parts and always engaging. The book is divided into three key sections, each introduced by the editors: Past and Present: Moral Practices with Children and Families Ethical Tensions? Ambivalent Ethics and Adult Social Work Contesting Modernisation Each section covers a range of topics and poses difficult questions which link to ethical dilemmas or anxieties. These are attached to themes such as whether culturally sensitive social work is always a good thing, the implications of secrets and silence within inter-generational families or the use of Controlled Treatment Orders or medical and social models within mental health social work. Other chapters ask whether the many forms of user/carer participation within social work education or practise are ethically viable, explore the moral paradoxes which emerge when vested financial interest sometimes appear to eclipse users' interests, examine the implications of avoiding or uncritically deploying 'touch' in social work/care or consider the many moral implications of institutional abuse within social work. With a focussed and clear writing style, this book will be of interest to all social work students and practitioners interested in the practical yet complex moral ramifications of their applied role.

Responding to Youth Crime in Hong Kong

Penal Elitism, Legitimacy and Citizenship

A society’s response to youth crime reveals much about its broader cultural values, social circumstances, and political affairs. This book examines reactions and policy responses to youth delinquency and crime in Hong Kong during its colonial and post-colonial periods, and in doing so, underscores the history of Hong Kong itself and its present-day circumstances. Exploring how officials have responded to youth crime in Hong Kong over time, this book tracks the emergence of a penal elitist mode of governance, highlighting concerns not only about young people’s behavior but the need for officials to establish state authority and promote citizen identification. In turn, it reveals an alternative to the ‘usual story’ about youth crime found in many western regions and provides an opportunity to begin to develop a comparative criminology. The book examines the emergence of the ‘disciplinary welfare’ tariff during the 1970s, debates and policy changes related to the minimum age of criminal responsibility and youth sex crimes, and inaction regarding the introduction of restorative justice initiatives in the post-colonial era. It also addresses the power of ‘Post-80s’ youth to protest and challenge government policies, which directly combat contemporary fears regarding the ‘mainlandization’ of Hong Kong. Drawing on archival sources, official reports and interviews with key stakeholders in the juvenile justice system, Responding to Youth Crime in Hong Kong will appeal to students and scholars interested in Chinese society, criminology, social work, sociology and youth studies.

Man stelle sich vor: Jemand gibt eine Dinnerparty, man unterhält sich gepflegt über Gott und die Welt, und zwischen Hauptgang und Dessert steht einer der Gäste auf und geht kurz nach oben. Und kommt nicht wieder. Hat sich im Gästezimmer eingeschlossen. Auf Tage, Wochen, Monate ... Zu einer Dinnerparty bringt der Freund eines Freundes einen Fremden mit, Miles Garth. Man unterhält sich, wird angenehm betrunken, die Diskussionen werden lebhafter, und manchmal schrammen sie auch kurz am Streit vorbei. Man kennt das. Miles fügt sich einigermaßen in die Runde ein, auch wenn er als Vegetarier, der nicht trinkt und manchmal allzu offen spricht, irgendwie anders ist. Doch dann steht Miles mitten unter dem Essen auf, schließt sich im Gästezimmer ein und ist fortan nicht mehr dazu zu bewegen, wieder herauszukommen. Das kennt man eher nicht. Und es ist überdies ganz schön peinlich, zumal der ungebetene Dauergast bald überregionale Prominenz erlangt und sich um das Haus in Greenwich eine Miles-Fangemeinde schart, inklusive Protestbannern und Merchandising. Währenddessen versuchen vier Personen das Rätsel um Miles zu lösen: Anna, die vor dreißig Jahren mit Miles durch Europa reiste; Mark, der Miles zur Party mitgebracht hat; May, eine alte, demente Frau, deren Verbindung zu Miles sehr überraschend ist (und sehr zu Herzen geht); und die neunjährige Brooke, die vor Wissbegierde strotzt und Wortspiele über alles liebt. Ali Smith erzählt diese aberwitzige Geschichte, die eigentlich jedem hätte genauso passieren können, mit unvergleichlichem Wortwitz und rasantem Charme. Ihr Roman ist eine umwerfende Satire über die Brüchigkeit gesellschaftlicher Konventionen – und wie wenig es nur braucht, um die geheiligte Ordnung unseres bürgerlichen Lebens gehörig durcheinanderzubringen.
