About the Author

Jacki Pritchard is a qualified social worker registered with the General Social Care Council with extensive experience as a practitioner and manager in both fieldwork and hospital settings. She is currently working as an independent social worker, trainer, consultant and researcher focusing on abuse, risk and violence, and is series editor of the Good Practice in Health, Social Care and Criminal Justice series and the Violence and Abuse series, both published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers.


Jacki Pritchard, a stalwart in the adult protection field in England, has edited these books to cover a variety of different aspects of good practice. The fact that she has harnessed such an impressive set of authors (27) from a range of academic backgrounds speaks for itself. This immediately tells me both books (Good Practive in Safeguarding Adults and Good Practice in the Law and Safeguarding Adults) will have lots of reference information and are likely to have set presentations which are easier on the brain. -- Rostrum

It is touching to be made aware that prisoners' need for protection measure are just as vital as those who have their freedom...Pritchard has a deliberate strand threaded though each book:

* Effective practice must start with removing familiar and unfamiliar labels for groups and applying the same compassionate approach to all due to their shared vulnerability

* Each professional must have at their disposal accurate legal knowledge of all the coutries in Britain to implement change.

In other words, the practitioner in adult protection in the present century is almost reinvented as a specialist in generic knowledge. Pritchard's books help encourage the spread of such ideas.

-- Bert Calder, Mental Health Officer, Falkirk Council
