Overwhelmingly, critical practitioners working across a range of human service fields, who are committed to emancipatory and progressive social change ideals, report feeling powerless, alienated from the means of change, and hopeless about their capacities to make a difference in the lives of the individuals, groups or communities with whom they work because of restrictive contexts that ultimately determine the nature and parameters of their work. This ground-breaking book addresses this dilemma by demonstrating how critical reflection as an educational tool enables practitioners to envision possibilities for change. The legal system, particularly in its response to sexual assault provides a perfect example of this type of context and this volume explores the work of sexual assault practitioners that are engaged in supporting victims/survivors of sexual assault through the legal process. By reshaping ideas that have previously been considered as predominantly theoretical and abstract, Morley’s work provides an innovative framework that enables social work and human services practitioners to find hope, agency and practical strategies to work towards change, despite operating in contexts that appear immutably oppressive.

Critical social work encourages emancipatory personal and social change. This text focuses on the challenge of incorporating critical theory into the practice of social workers and provides case studies and insights from a range of fields to illustrate how to work with tensions and challenges. Beginning with an outline of the theoretical basis of critical social work and its different perspectives, the authors go on to introduce key features of working in this tradition including critical reflection. Part II explores critical practices in confronting privilege and promoting social justice in social work, examining such issues as human rights, gender, poverty and class. Part III considers the development of critical practices within the organisational context of social work including the fields of mental health, child and family services, within Centrelink and prison settings. Part IV is focused on doing anti- discriminatory and anti-oppressive practice in social work with particular populations including asylum seekers, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, domestic violence survivors, older people and lesbian, gay and transgender groups. Finally, Part V outlines collectivist and transformative practices in social work and beyond, looking at environmental issues, social activism, the disability movement and globalisation. 'A highly valuable addition to social work education and practice literature in Australia and beyond its shores.'

The miniscule motion of a butterfly’s wings can trigger a tornado half a world away, according to chaos theory. Catharine A. MacKinnon’s collected work on gender inequality—including new pieces—argues that the right seemingly minor interventions in the legal realm can have a butterfly effect that generates major social and cultural transformations.

This book is the result of a seminar on emancipatory education and the action research projects in the Department of Didactics at the University of the Western Cape in South Africa. The book starts with questions regarding the nature of action research. This first chapter discusses the meaning of some crucial organizing concepts, asks questions regarding the fields in which one might undertake action research, and examines the understanding of emancipation. The second chapter contextualizes the work that was the focus of the seminar. The third chapter problematizes disciplinary knowledge-making with regard to the practice of People's Education and action research. This chapter touches on three issues: (1) the producers of knowledge; (2) the types of knowledge that are used; and (3) the kind of teaching and learning materials that are employed. Chapters 4-8, in a certain sense, form a separate section of the work in that they treat the practice of emancipatory action research as and where it occurs in actual institutionalized education situations, as well as in schools and other institutions in the wider sense. Chapter 4 focuses on emancipatory education practice in art education. Chapters 5 and 10 look at the use of socially critical action research in promoting greater measures of reflective teaching in preservice teacher education. Chapter 6 presents a case study that addresses the difference between the democratic rhetoric that teachers often use outside of their classrooms, and the authoritarian manner that many of them adopt in the teaching situation. Chapters 7-9 focus on the challenges that face emancipatory action research in South Africa. The final chapter, 11, provides an overview. (DK)
