Overview

Critical Social Work: An Introduction to Theories and Practices by Bob Pease

This introduction to critical social work offers a systematic overview of core theories and practice issues in challenging domination and oppression by arguing that a central goal of social work practice is social change to redress social inequality. Taking a critical theoretical approach that incorporates postmodern, feminist, structural, and postcolonial perspectives, the contributors explore the links between personal and social change. While many critical social work educators argue it is necessary to draw upon both modernist and postmodern appropriations of critical theory, this book explores the tensions and contradictions in adopting this dual perspective.
