Clinical Work and Social Action: An Integrative Approach develops a paradigm for social work and human services practice that integrates clinical work and social action.

Social workers, clinicians, activists, and educators will explore ways to create harmony in the divisions that currently exist between values, theory, and practice, thereby reducing conflicts in their work. This book identifies central values and selected theoretical ideas for a new model of work that you can adapt to your practice setting.

Separate chapters include case material related to work with people of color, work with oppressed populations, and classroom teaching. Clinical Work and Social Action connects the historic split between clinical work and social action to better serve the people with whom you work.

Through Clinical Work and Social Action, you will find valuable suggestions and insights into how you can integrate values, theory, and practice as the basis for a new model of work. The book includes topics such as:

  • exposing the myth that “politics” has no place in practice with individual clients and families and demonstrates that all practice is political
  • examining a new paradigm for practice that encourages change at the individual, agency, and social policy levels
  • demonstrating the importance of Paulo Freire’s ideas about dialogical praxis to social welfare work
  • teaching a model of practice that facilitates and promotes involvement and open dialogue with people in the community and students in the classroom
  • offering insight into how you can respond to the full range of your clients’concerns, such as racism, classism, homophobia, domestic violence, homelessness, disabilities, and emotional difficulties
  • exploring how your values, theories, training and experience affect the choice of interventions you make with individuals, groups, and families

    To bridge the gap between clinical work and social action, you must develop a practice that includes the possibility of social change. With Clinical Work and Social Action, you will find many case studies and examples to help you do just that. This informative book provides you with ways to work with clients to bring about individual and social change and offers strategies for creating change in social agencies and communities.

About the Author:

Jerome Sachs, DSW, is Associate Professor at Smith College School for Social Work, where he teaches in the practice and human behavior and the social environment sequences. Dr. Sachs has written articles and presented at conferences on topics that include play and psychoanalysis, work with a group of homeless people, the phenomenology of social work practice, and clinical work and social action. In 1992 he produced two hour-long videos on the lives of a homeless man and a homeless woman. Before going to Smith College in 1987, Dr. Sachs worked with street gangs, was a group worker and community organizer in settlement houses, and practiced and supervised psychoanalysis. He also taught social work, sociology, and psychoanalysis in New York City. For the past twelve years, he has been involved with issues of rural homelessness and welfare rights. In addition, Dr. Sachs is a member of the steering committee of the Bertha Capen Reynolds Society.

Fred Newdom, ACSW, is President of ProAct, an Albany, New York, consulting firm specializing in advocacy and organizational development services. He also teaches courses in social policy at the Smith College School for Social Work in Massachusetts and other schools. Mr. Newdom also has served as chair of the Board of New York State NARAL (National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League) and is currently chair of the Bertha Capen Reynolds Society, a national organization of progressive workers in the human services. His advocacy work has included work with AIDS organizations, legislative and organizing projects related to tax policy, lobbying for the WIC program, and working for decent welfare reform. He was Executive Director of the New York State chapter of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and chaired NASW's Committee on Peace and Social Justice.

Dr. Sachs and Mr. Newdom collectively bring over seventy years of casework, group work, and social justice work to the writing of this book.
