Social Workers in Australia are increasingly called upon to work across social differences in ways that promote social justice and challenge growing inequity, and anti-oppressive practice has been put at the heart of qualifying programmes. In this exciting new collection, some of Australia’s leading social work academics explore working across so-called human differences within the context of contemporary social work.

By drawing on the insights and theories of people who have been positioned as ‘different’, the authors use practice vignettes and original data to provide ways to join theory and practice, with a primary focus on thinking about how to change patterns of social difference.

Whether a social work student or an experienced practitioner, Working Across Differences is essential reading for anyone who values anti-oppressive practice and social justice.

Working with difference is essential for all social work. This book explores many areas of knowledge and practice, and is an indispensable source for social workers seeking to realise a world where difference is not a problem to be addressed, but is to be celebrated as essential to the collective human experience.’ – Professor Jim Ife, Professor of Social Work, Western Sydney University, Australia
This exciting collection scrutinizes social work’s complicity, albeit often unintentionally, in reinforcing oppressive colonialist and structural inequities.  Critically interrogating how white privilege and other forms of structural oppression are legitimized it explores ways of disrupting, challenging and building resistance. In doing this it creates space for rich dialogue about inclusive, participative and collaborative practice.’ – Emeritus Professor Jude Irwin, University of Sydney, Australia
