The New Structural Social Work: Ideology, Theory, Practice

The New Structural Social Work: Ideology, Theory, Practice Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The New Structural Social Work reveals the shortcomings of conventional social work, which accepts and participates in the present social order rather than addressing the systemic social problems that exist within capitalist societies. Mullaly advocates for a progressive view of social work that is practiced within the social agency, outside of the agency, and within the personal lives of structural social workers.

Synopsis:

This new edition has been substantially rewritten and includes new sections on globalized capitalism and modernism and postmodernism, and a new chapter on oppression as the source of social problems and the focus of structural social work.
