Practice and Research in Social Work: Postmodern Feminist Perspectives

Barbara Fawcett, Brid Featherstone, Jan Fook, Amy Rossiter

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Although postmodernist theory has been related to and explored in sociology and social policy, this book is amongst the first to apply the theories to social work, and relate them to current debates. Contributors come from the UK, Australia, South Africa and Canada and many have professional experience as social workers. They appraise the key issues in the contested field of postmodernism and feminism and focus on their applications to practice, research and education in social work.
