The book begins with an account of the nature of anti-oppressive practice and goes on to explore the core theories, concepts and strategies of anti-oppressive practice. Key features of the book include: " a positive preventative approach that sets it apart from existing texts in the field " invaluable practical guidance on how to develop and evaluate personal and organisational cultural practice " a number of helpful features, such as annotated case studies which illustrate best practice, cultural competence and common pitfalls.
