Abstract:

Social construction addresses the cultural factors and social dynamics that generate and maintain values and beliefs. Drawing on postmodern and critical theories and philosophies, the approach has come to influence thinking and practice not only within social work but also within other, related fields. Social construction's diverse and inclusive approach to knowledge makes it particularly amenable to global contexts of social work practice. In this accessible collection, Stanley Witkin showcases the innovative ways social construction may be implemented and expanded.
