TheMoreThis exciting new book on social work is both practical and theoretical.

It is a pioneering work, situating theory within a participatory worldview and grounding practice in the important issues of our times: social justice and sustainability. The ideas, by authors Margaret Ledwith and Jane Springett, are founded on two premises. First, transformative practice begins in the stories of peoples everyday lives and the practical theory generated from these narratives is the best way to inform both policy and practice.

This innovative approach bridges the divide between ideas and practice, and allows the development of knowledge that is needed to bring about transformative social change. Second, participatory approaches to practice allow practitioners not only to critically examine the world, but also to reflect on the way in which they view the world in order to situate their local practice more relevantly within bigger social issues.
