Mapping Knowledge for Social Work Practice: Critical Intersections recognises that both social work students and their field educators face increasingly complex case and community concerns in the 21st century. With a strong focus on the key issues and debates within social work in Australasia, this text provides a range of pathways for students to investigate these practice challenges in both classroom and placement settings. The text addresses eight core curriculum areas: theory, practice skills, policy, research, working in communities, ethics, community development and life course development. Cutting through these curriculum areas are four major threads that reflect some of the key issues and debates concerns and discussions within social work at present: service user perspectives; engagement with critical social theory; analysis of cultural imperatives (biculturalism, multiculturalism, diversity and indigenous development); and major changes in the profession. Throughout the text, pre-chapter quizzes, exercises and questions allow students to engage with the theory and reflect on their own learning and critical thinking skills.
Examples of services and research from both Australia and New Zealand further enhance the practical nature of the text.
