Summary "This text demonstrates the relationship between social work and sociological theory. It provides students with a strong knowledge base to support the development of critical social work practice." "The book integrates both theory and practice to cover a wide range of sociological material. Each chapter defines and explains the sometimes complex vocabulary associated with sociology and then illustrates its relevance to social work practice. Adopting a step-by-step approach, Oak provides social work students with the conceptual tools necessary for competent and socially aware practice."--BOOK JACKET.
