Tackling Social Exclusion
Routledge, 16/10/2009 - 240 من الصفحات
The concept of social exclusion has been a central focus of government policy for the past ten years and is now at the core of much practitioner activity.
Thoroughly updated, this much needed second edition shows how social workers can combat the social exclusion experienced by service users and at the same time promote social inclusion. It clearly and accessibly demonstrates how concepts and theories of social exclusion can be used to improve practice. Tackling Social Exclusion covers:
Each chapter is grounded in up-to-date practice examples and explores through activities, case studies and exercises how the perspective of social exclusion is changing social work today.
