Anti-Oppressive Social Work Practice

Anti-Oppressive Social Work Practice
Putting Theory Into Action

Additional resources:

September 2014 | 512 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Anti-Oppressive Social Work Practice is the first text to fully integrate concepts of anti-oppressive practice with generalist practice course content. This comprehensive approach introduces concepts of social justice and offers detailed insight into how those principles intersect with the practice of social work at the micro, mezzo, and macro levels. The book covers ethics, values, and social work theory, and discusses the fundamentals of working with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities. The book illustrates practice within organizations and communities, in addition to highlighting policy and social movement activism and practice within a global context. Maintaining an integrative approach throughout, authors Karen Morgaine and Moshoula Capous-Desyllas effectively bridge the gap between anti-oppressive principles and practice, and offer a practical, comprehensive solution to schools approaching reaccreditation under the mandated CSWE Standards.
