Radical Casework represents a major innovation in the social work field. It bridges the seemingly unbridgeable gap between the rhetoric of social analysis and the day-to-day practice of the social worker. Written in a clear, direct style, Radical Casework illustrates, step by step, how broad theoretical analysis and specific skills can be linked in each phase of the casework process. Drawing on socialist feminist analysis, this radical theory for practice encourages practising social caseworkers and students alike to develop their own practice in a radical way across a variety of settings. Radical Casework also provides extensive descriptions of practice strategies and case illustrations. Radical Casework brings traditional casework into the 1990s.
