International Perspectives on Social Work Global Conditions and Local Practice

by Karen Lyons, Kathleen Manion, Mary Carlsen

International Perspectives on Social Work Global Conditions and Local Practice Synopsis

As social work is fundamentally being altered by the 'Internationalization' of social problems, this book examines the implications for students and practitioners. Arguing that social professionals working locally need an understanding of global mechanisms and cross-cultural issues, it includes both local level and international examples.
