The reader will find here a gold mine of creative ideas for transforming courses, for working toward partnership and learner-centered models of education that foster critical thinking, and for new and more empowering models of practice and research.

A growing number of social work educators across the country have not only been integrating constructionist ideas into the curriculum, but some have been moving toward a radical revisioning of social work education altogether. Revisioning Social Work Education contains a number of original chapters by leading social work educators from practice, human behavior and the social environment, and research that together constitute an exciting and innovative call for major educational reform in social work.

While this book holds between its covers a provocative and innovative collection of ideas for revisioning social work education, it is not “right,” “true,” or even complete. This book brings readers to their own history of ideas which stimulates dialogue about how to bring social work fully into the postmodern era.
