Summary

Human Behavior Theory and Social Work Practice with Marginalized Oppressed Populations addresses what social workers can do to combat the increasingly complex social concerns that face the profession, and explores how to incorporate the celebration of diversity and the protection of human rights into social work curricula and the helping process. The authors combine human behavior theories with a narrative, postmodern practice methodology that deals with both the client’s or constituencies’ presenting problem and equity issues, and, as a result, the book is both theoretical and applied. Two major integrating themes throughout are at the forefront of the book—the celebration of diversity and the equality of human rights. The goal is to strengthen diversity and human rights components of the social work curriculum and to provide more practice guidelines for cross-cultural practice.
