Equality and Diversity in Social Work Practice Summary

Equality and Diversity in Social Work Practice by Chris Gaine

Social workers must develop a sensitive yet informed approach when working with service users from different social and cultural groups. In many aspects of life, including accessing human services, people are marginalised, ignored, stigmatised or discriminated against because of one or more aspects of their identity: age, sexual orientation, faith or belief, gender, race or ethnicity, social class, and disability.

This book acts as a guide for students to develop their understanding of these various groups while illustrating how the social work value base can be a central part of such understanding.

Equality and Diversity in Social Work Practice Reviews

"While the style is very simple this is also to the credit of the book, making it a highly accessible publication for Level I students. It offers a wide agenda on social divisions, is a useful introductory text - not least because of its neat conclusion, helpful glossary and provision of very good reading lists." Lecturer, University of Coventry
