Ecology and Social Work by John Coates

Book Description

A new direction for policy and action is outlined in this reconsideration of the theoretical framework and application of social work. A holistic, inclusive vision of social work is presented to usher in a change from a self-centered, anticollectivist paradigm to a mutually beneficial, community-focused worldview. Criticized are the assumptions, values, and beliefs that have guided the dominant worldview's support of environmental devastation. Concerns for sustainability, social justice, and global consciousness guide this revision of social work.
