This book draws together the practice wisdom emerging within the broad scope of international social work practice. Using an integrated perspectives approach, which incorporates global, human rights, ecological, and social development perspectives, the authors prepare readers to actively respond to modern global challenges that are critical to the well-being of people, communities, nations, and ultimately all of us.
• Provides an integrated perspectives approach to international social work and social development practice to give readers alternative theoretical frameworks not found in other books.
• Focuses on the experience of teaching and practicing international social work, rather than reflecting
on the field.
• Includes tables, chapter summaries, learning exercises, and questions, possible research areas, and
recommended readings to prompt critical thinking and classroom discussion.
