0 Reviews
Social work education is currently undergoing major changes in professional training with anti-discriminatory practice a high priority area. Psychology for Social Workers provides an introductory text which will help qualifying and practising social workers to understand and counteract the impact of discrimination; work in an ethnically sensitive way; demonstrate an awareness of ways to combat both individual and institutional racism through anti-racist practice. Drawing together research material and literature on black perspectives in human development and behaviour from North America and Britain, it provides a starting point that will inspire discussion and debate in the social work field and will generate future theoretical and research questions. Among the topics covered are black perspectives in group work and the family, identity development and academic achievement in black children, and mental health issues in relation to black people.
