Description - Advocacy, Counselling and Mediation in Casework by Yvonne Craig
Advocacy, counselling and mediation are compared in this text as social processes of social empowerment. The contributors, who are all practitioners in their fields, examine the cultural and organizational contexts in which each of these media has developed, as well as their potential usefulness in casework. The chapters cover a number of areas of casework that cause particular concern including cultural and community conflict, work and post-traumatic stress management and health decision making, describing each in a multidisciplinary setting with case illustrations. Taking a socially inclusive approach, the book bases itself on principles which should promote positive action for social justice, as well as non-discriminatory, non-oppressive and non-stereotypical equal policies and practices.
