About this title


According to the NASW Code of Ethics, social workers should challenge social injustice. Educating for Social Justice approaches this tenet head-on, defining it and offering numerous strategies to prompt student reflection and awareness of social justice in their own practice. Educating for Social Justice is a vital resource for instructors and practitioners alike as they work to better incorporate key values of social work into practice. The editors include an overview of social justice theories, practitioner-tested national and international ideas about incorporating social justice into educational experiences within and outside of the classroom, and offer how-to guides for instructors to replicate and build on the ideas presented.


* Seamlessly incorporates theoretical, historical, and practice-based tools for teaching social justice
* Concisely summarizes contemporary literatures surrounding social justice in the social work profession
* Offers strategies for incorporating social justice in a variety of settings,
