9780231115483: The Empowerment Approach to Social Work Practice

First published in 1994, this book was hailed as a cutting-edge, theory-driven report from the front-line trenches in the battle for social justice. Both clinical and community oriented and written from a global perspective, it presents clients speaking for themselves alongside reports of prominent social work educators. This new edition puts greater emphasis on "how-to" skills in working with people toward their own empowerment and stresses multiculturalism. A new chapter identifies worldwide issues of oppression such as abuse of women and children and neglect of the mentally ill.

Book Description:

Strengthened by the use of case studies, the book presents five perspectives on understanding both individual and group oppression: historical, ecological, critical, ethical, and feminist. The second edition places an increased emphasis on "how-to" skills and introduces more material on the narrative and constructivist approach to empowerment. The most innovative addition is a new chapter designed to identify world-wide issues of oppression.

From the Back Cover:

First published in 1994, The Empowerment Approach to Social Work Practice remains the only broad-based text to deal with empowering clients to take control of their environment. Strengthened by the use of case studies, the book presents five perspectives of understanding both individual and group oppression: historical, ecological, critical, ethical, and feminist. The second edition places an increased emphasis on "how-to" skills and introduces more material on the narrative and constructivist approach to empowerment. The most innovative addition is a new chapter designed to identify worldwide issues of oppression, such as abuse of women and children and the neglect of the mentally ill and developmentally challenged.
