Overview

Written by practitioners for practitioners, this volume examines feminist practice in conventional settings, where social workers who are feminist struggle to integrate their commitments and analyses into their day-to-day work. Contributors explore issues of concern to feminist social workers, including family violence, social security and child abuse. They include case studies from a variety of clinical settings, such as health centres, hospitals and community health and counselling centres.
