pdf epub fb2 djvu



"Radical Casework" represents a major innovation in the social work field. It attempts to bridge the seemingly unbridgeable gap between the rhetoric of social analysis and the day-to-day practice of the average social worker. The author aims to illustrate, step-by-step, how in each phase of the casework process, broad theoretical analysis and specific skills can be linked. Drawing on socialist feminist analysis, this radical theory for practice encourages practising social caseworkers and students alike to develop their own practice in a radical way across a variety of settings. The book carries extensive description of practice strategies and case illustrations. It also discusses contentious issues which have arisen out of over a decade of the author's research and teaching about radical casework. An appendix includes exercises to aid the reader's understanding of specific radical awareness and skills. This book is intended for social work students and practising social workers.
