Social problems are usually the result of a variety of factors ranging from the private to the public in nature, yet social workers all too often deal only with the problems of individuals. Social Work and Social Change in Canada challenges this and urges social work practitioners to assume responsibility for facilitating structural changes by working the "middle ground" between private troubles and public issues. This book will help practitioners to "empower" client individuals, families or groups to address private troubles. In the process practitioners are persuaded to work in partnership with existing social movements to bring about the necessary changes for an improved social and therefore, personal environment. Social Work and Social Change in Canada devotes a chapter to each of the women's, labour, and native movements, and explores the ways in which social workers can involve themselves as professionals with these vital means to change.
