    DescriptionFully revised and updated, this is an essential introduction to the latest thinking on progressive social work. It features dedicated mailing and e-mail campaign to social work related media & organisations. "Critical Social Work" starts from the premise that a central goal of social work practice is social change to redress social inequality. Taking a critical theoretical approach, the authors explore the links between personal and social change. They confront the challenges for critical social work in the context of pressures to separate the personal from the political and in responding to the impact of changes in the socio-political, statutory and global contexts of practice. Fully revised and updated, this edition's coverage of theoretical frameworks has been substantially expanded and reflects current concerns such as evidence-based practice and human rights. The causes of people's marginalisation and oppression are examined in relation to class, race, ethnicity, gender and other forms of social inequality. This new edition also includes updated case studies on working with immigrants, women, men, families, people with mental health issues, and those experiencing loss and grief, as well as new case studies on disability, older people, children, violence, and abuse.
