Product Details


I have found student engagement with this book to be outstanding. Students express much appreciation for the book s contributions to their learning, especially as it is grounded in very practical terms (it resonates) with their work experiences and/or placements. Overall a fine and important collection of writing. --Gordon Pon, School of Social Work, Ryerson University" Now, more than ever, we need to commit ourselves to anti-oppressive, transformative social work practice. Baines edited collection helps us to do just this. Well conceptualized, organized and integrated, the book is set in Canada but has much wider application given the pernicious and wide reaching effects of neo-conservative and New Public Management regimes. No matter whether you are a student, frontline practitioner, policy maker or academic, it offers rich insights and inspiration. --Heather Fraser, Social Work, Flinders University, South Australia" This has been a helpful text for examining issues of gender and oppression through an intersectional lens. The book not only introduces anti-oppressive practice as a current form of progressive social work, but also provides helpful illustrations on topics such as indigenous pathways to anti-oppressive practice, bridging the practice-activism divide, anti-oppressive practice in child welfare, and restructuring and everyday resistance. A range of Canadian authors describe strategies, highlight issues and raise practical dilemmas inherent in practicing social work from an anti-oppressive perspective. --Lyn Ferguson, Faculty of Social Work, University of Manitoba"
