Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415369134, Paperback)

Social work education has recently undergone major changes, with anti-discriminatory practice being a high priority area in professional training. 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.

Updated throughout to cover recent legislation, this second edition is an essential introductory text for all social workers in training and practice and for their teachers and trainers.
