Now in its fourth edition, completely revised and updated, this book continues to offer in-depth coverage spanning both conceptual debates about empowerment and a range of practice issues. The text provides social workers with a clear framework for critical and empowering practice with service users and carers. The author offers an account of the development of empowerment and participation in practice, considering all dimensions, from work with individuals and groupwork, through to organisational, community and political aspects.


The clarity and accessibility, as well as new examples reflecting varied global contexts and material on empowering children and adults, make it an essential resource at all levels of study.
