The structural approach to direct practice in social work [electronic resource] : a social constructionist perspective / Gale Goldberg Wood and Carol T. Tully.

Wood, Gale Goldberg. (Author). Tully, Carol Thorpe, 1946- (Added Author). Thomson Gale (Firm) (Added Author).


Introduces students to the structural approach of social work practice, which assumes that many clients' problems arise from harmful social forces. By focusing on the construction of such realities as poverty, racism, and domestic violence, the structural approach counters the focus on individual change that is so common in the age of managed care and corporatization.
