Feminist Social Work Practice in Clinical Settings

Edited by:


August 1991 | 320 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Written by practitioners for practitioners, this volume examines feminist practice in conventional settings, where social workers who are feminist struggle to integrate their commitments and analyses into their day-to-day work. Contributors explore issues of concern to feminist social workers, including family violence, social security and child abuse. They include case studies from a variety of clinical settings, such as health centres, hospitals and community health and counselling centres.
