Anti-Oppressive Practice: Social Care and the Law
McGraw-Hill Education (UK), Dec 1, 2006 - Social Science - 360 pages
The authors draw on their own experiences and those of practitioners, service users and carers to understand issues of power and oppression, demonstrating how the law can be used to inform the development of critical anti-oppressive practice. The book therefore points the way to practice that is both empowering to service users and ultimately liberating for practitioners.
