QUT Centre for Justice are proud to announce to release of Routledge Handbook of Critical Pedagogies for Social Work which includes 43 chapters from 54 authors across 13 different countries. Included in this book are contributions from many QUT C4J members from the School of Public Health and Social Work including Christine Morley (Editor), Peter Westoby, Julie King, Michelle Newcomb, Heather Fraser, Jennifer Mays, Jen Kaighin, Lisa Stafford, Jean Carruthers and Mark Brough – all pictured below.
The Routledge Handbook of Critical Pedagogies for Social Work traverses new territory by providing a cutting-edge overview of the work of classic and contemporary theorists, in a way that expands their application and utility in social work education and practice; thus, providing a bridge between critical theory, philosophy, and social work.
Each chapter showcases the work of a specific critical educational, philosophical, and/or social theorist to elucidate the ways in which their key pedagogic concepts can be applied to specific aspects of social work education and practice. The text exhibits a range of research-based approaches to educating social work practitioners as agents of social change. It provides a robust, and much needed, alternative paradigm to the technique-driven ‘conservative revolution’ currently being fostered by neoliberalism in both social work education and practice.
Congratulations to everyone involved.
