Social Labour Criticism Encourages Personal Empowerment and Social ChangeThis paper focuses on the challenge of integrating critique from theory to practice of social workers and case studies and ideas from a range of fields to illustrate how to work with tensions and challenges.Beginning with a description of the theoretical basis of social work critique and its different points of view, the authors will present the main characteristics of social work in this tradition, including critical reflection.Part II critically examines practices in the struggle for privilege and the promotion of social justice in social work, examining issues such as human rights, gender, poverty and class.Part III considers the development of practice criticism in the organization of social work, including child mental health and family services, within Centrelink and prisons.Part IV focuses on the fight against discrimination and anti-oppressive practice in social work, with particular attention to populations, including asylum-seekers, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, victims of domestic violence, the elderly and lesbian, gay and transgendered groups.Finally, Part V presents collectivist and transformative practices in social work and beyond to research on environmental issues, social activism, disability movement and globalization.A very valuable complement to training in social work and literature practice in Australia and beyond.Ruth Phillips, Associate Professor, Faculty of Education and Social Work, University of Sydney
