A commitment to promoting social justice for diverse individuals and populations is the foundation for culturally competent social work practice. This book aims to help prepare professional social workers to transform oppressive and unjust systems into nonoppressive and just alternatives. Intended for both undergraduate and graduate courses as a student guide, Social Work Practice for Social Justice is a companion to Garcia and Van Soests earlier work, Diversity Education for Social Justice: Mastering Teaching Skills. The authors engage students and stimulate their learning by presenting fundamental concepts that define and elaborate on racism and institutional qualities, oppression, classism, social justice, and social inequities.
