Now going into its sixth edition, Neil Thompson's Anti-Discriminatory Practice has been providing a trusted introduction to the challenges of promoting social justice and equality for almost a quarter of a century.

Addressing the common concepts and issues across the various forms of discrimination, this book explores the reasons why the development of anti-discriminatory practice is so vital, and examines the steps that need to be taken towards constructing a social work practice based on principles of anti-discrimination and the promotion of equality. Written with Thompson's inimitable clarity, this new edition features:

- Voice of Experience and Practice Focus examples, encouraging readers to think contextually and integrate theory and practice.

- An explicit theory base, with key points from each chapter drawn out to highlight specific main themes

- A range of questions for reflection and guidance on further learning

Promoting social justice, diversity and equality in social work practice is as vital today as it was when Anti-Discriminatory Practice was first published, and there is still much to learn. This new, fully updated edition of the classic text remains an essential read for the next generation of social work students, practitioners, managers and educators.

Neil Thompson is a highly respected writer and developer of online learning resources, with over 38 years' experience in the people professions. He has held full or honorary professorships at four UK universities, and is now a sought-after consultant and conference speaker. He runs the Avenue Professional Development Programme, an online learning community and tutorial group for people professionals. His website and blog are at www.neilthompson.info.
