9780470252864: International Social Work Policy and Practice: Practical Insights and Perspectives

Authoritative coverage of social work policy and practice from a global perspective

In order for social and economic justice to flourish globally, a greater understanding of practice and policy efforts from around the world is essential for today's professional in the human services.

International Social Work Policy and Practice: Practical Insights and Perspectives provides practitioners and students with contemporary examples and thought-provoking activities to promote in-depth insight and analysis of global social welfare issues such as poverty and the environment.

Thorough and practical, this book examines social work policy and practice within the context of global interdependence and culturally appropriate modes of everyday practice. Its country-by-country coverage includes Peru, Mongolia, Portugal, Malawi, Costa Rica, and South Africa, following a consistent structure that, in addition to offering real-life examples, delves into the theoretical underpinnings, ethical dilemmas, policy concerns, and strategies for promoting social and economic justice.

Each example of international practice-contributed by internationally recognized professionals who have lived and worked in the nation they are writing about-allows readers to immerse themselves in that country's cultural, social, historical, political, and economic context. Reflective exercises and Web-based, interactive activities give readers the chance to connect and apply what they've learned.

Serving as an impetus for learning more about the unique struggles and strengths of those in countries around the world, International Social Work Policy and Practice offers intriguing firsthand observations and perspectives on the relevance of social work's leadership role in grappling with the human elements and challenges associated with globalization.
