Michael Preston-Shoot, "W(h)ither Social Work? Social Work, Social Policy and Law at an Interface: Confronting the Challenges and Realising the Potential in Work with people Needing Care or Services", Liverpool Law Review 18/1 (1996), 19-39: This article identifies key challenges facing social work, particularly focusing on legalism, social work's organisational context and values, and the resources available to meet people's health and social care needs. The paper then identifies four elements available to social workers, other professionals, and users of services in articulating and defending the values and rights in the delivery of social welfare. The paper suggests that other professional groups face questions and demands similar to those which confront social work and, accordingly, must also engage in debates about the objectives of welfare. e-mail: M.PRESTONSHOOT@livjm.ac.uk
