This book consists of a selection of papers from those delivered at a recent conference on anti-oppressive practice in social work. Dr. Shera has gathered expert contributors to discuss, define and analyse theories of social work practice, pedagogical issues, fieldwork practice, models of education of social work practitioners and current critical issues. These selected conference papers lay the groundwork for anti-oppressive practice in a way that will generate discussion and inspire researchers and practitioners.
Dr. Wes Shera has served as Dean of Social Work at the University of Toronto. He has taught in that department for much of his career.
