This unique anthology combines stories and essays by leading writers in the English-speaking world and some of our finest scholars with illuminative social work practice cases. Students learn from these rich sources about how to practice social work with knowledge of the histories, cultures, and world views of diverse others. Edited by two scholars (one with a social work background and the other with an English and American studies one), Social Work Practice With a Difference creatively grounds the knowledge, values, and skills of social work in a broad literary tradition.
