Abstract: First paragraph: Adults (people over 16) are assumed in law to be able to make their own decisions unless proven otherwise. This chapter addresses three civil statutes that give social work practitioners authority to intervene in the lives of adults. These include people who have been diagnosed as having a mental disorder, adults who lack capacity to make decisions and, most recently, adults at risk of harm.
