“Can social welfare workers contribute to social change or must they merely pick up the pieces? Using Australian examples of radical social welfare practice this book documents ways in which practitioners can challenge the status quo and work towards social change.
Social welfare work may contribute to social justice at both personal and political levels by confronting the multiple oppressions resulting from social class, sexism and racism. The contributors demonstrate how theory development and refinement can be grounded in the realities of actual practice, within, for example, an anti-racist educational curriculum, a rural community, a psychiatric setting, foster-care and child welfare programs.”
