Social Work and African-centred Worldviews


One of the consistent features of social work education has been the dearth of social work texts, which consider and address diverse worldviews and social philosophies as a theoretical base for models of social work practice. This book explores the socio-cultural perspectives that emerge from black communities as interpretative frameworks to explain and resolve social problems. The book is at the cutting edge of exploring new paradigms for social work and human services and is essential reading for human service professionals, educators and students in social work, social policy, black studies, youth and community work and sociology.
