Sinopsis: Social work is a human profession founded on social justice. It is difficult however to negotiate this in the constantly-changing context of the twenty-first century. Now in it′s Second Edition, this book considers the critical tradition of social work and updates it with postmodern thinking. Jan Fook draws on critical reflection to help social workers deliver flexible, responsible and responsive practice and to celebrate the ageless ideals of the profession. Jan Fook draws on her own experiences to relate theoretical ideas to real life. Summaries, exercises and further reading are also included in each chapter.
