Feminist Social Work Practice in Clinical Settings

Edited by:


June 1991 | 320 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Written by practitioners for practitioners, this intriguing volume examines feminist practice in conventional settings, where most social workers who are feminists struggle to integrate their commitments and analyses into their day-to-day work. Contributors explore a number of issues of concern to feminist social workers, including family violence, mental health, and child abuse. Making this an ideal resource for feminists, the contributors include case studies from a variety of clinical settings, such as health centers, hospitals, and community mental health and counseling centers. Each chapter presents a profile of the practitioner as well as the practice. Also included are chapters that focus on organizational and structural issues within feminist practice. These chapters illustrate and analyze some of the central concepts of feminist practice, such as empowerment with women of color.
