Social Work in the Community: Making a Difference

Barbra Teater, M J Baldwin

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Social Work in the Community explores contemporary approaches to community social work, community development and community action within political, theoretical, methodological and ethical frameworks. It emphasises the importance of collective perspectives on social work problems both as a different perspective but also as a critique of individualism within social work theory and practice. Social Work in the Community revisits radical and political approaches to social work from a community and collectivist standpoints.
