Just Practice

A Social Justice Approach to Social Work

Janet Finn

  • The Just Practice framework builds upon five key concepts-meaning, context, power, history, and possibility-that provide students a cohesive schema for connecting social work and social justice
  • The seven core processes-engagement, teaching/learning, action, accompaniment, evaluation, reflection, and celebration-include and expand upon the traditional assessment-intervention-evaluation model of practice
  • The book offers a thorough history of the progressive roots of social work and helps readers draw connections between the profession's history and contemporary challenges
  • The question-posing approach to pedagogy and classroom learning activities incorporated throughout the text engage students in the application of key concepts and provide an opportunity for critical thinking
