This short, affordable paperback takes a strengths approach in its overview of social work practice with an oppressed population. The book speaks directly to students through illustrations and boxes written by fellow students, as well as a wealth of case examples provided by experienced family counselors. The text includes an entire chapter on sexuality (Ch. 6), two chapters on health care with the gay, lesbian, and bisexual population (Chs. 9 and 10), and sections on homophobia and prejudice (Ch. 2). The strengths approach provides a skills framework that relates to direct practice with all vulnerable people; the text also incorporates diverse racial, and sexual, perspectives.
