Addressing the common concepts and issues across the various forms of discrimination, this core text from one of Palgrave’s best-selling authors 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.

This is key reading for undergraduate and postgraduate modules on Anti-discriminatory and Anti-oppressive Practice modules on Social Work programmes, as well as Social Work Theory and Social Work Practice modules. Practitioners will also benefit hugely from the experience and expertise of Neil Thompson.
