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.
