Anti-Racist Practice (ARP), Anti-Discriminatory Practice (ADP) and Anti-Oppressive Practice (AOP) form a trinity of concepts, nested into one another, which have evolved in welfare services over the last fifteen years. They tend to have developed as forms of practice panaceas and as a result have been subject to both unrealistic expectations and, at times, to political ridicule. This book clarifies the distinctions between three key concepts - ARP, ADP and AOP. Critically and constructively analysing these three approaches to practice it reappraises their potential in the light of emerging equality issues in the health service With contributions from leading teachers and practitioners in the field, Equalising Opportunities provides students and practitioners in health and social care with a clear overview of an area where there is much confusion and imperfect understanding.

Wie wirkt sich die Anwendung des nicht-direktiven, personenzentrierten Ansatzes auf uns Menschen aus? Welchen Einfluss haben die Elemente dieses Selbstkonzepts auf unser Miteinander, sowohl in der Therapie als auch in der Dynamik von Gruppen? Mit persönlichen Gedanken, Erfahrungen und Fallvignetten bringt Carl Rogers seine angestrebte lebensbejahende Daseinsform zum Ausdruck: Der Mitbegründer der Humanistischen Psychologie zeigt, was ein ausgeprägter Gemeinschaftssinn, aufgeschlossene zwischenmenschliche Kommunikation und Authentizität systemverändernd für Erziehung, Politik und unser Zusammenleben bedeuten. Den hier versammelten Aufsätzen liegt eine bestimmte Auffassung von der menschlichen Natur zugrunde: Es ist die Überzeugung, dass der menschliche Organismus, das einzelne Mitglied der Spezies Mensch, in seinen Tendenzen im Kern konstruktiv ist. In einem wachstums- und entwicklungsfördernden psychologischen Klima können diese Potentiale freigesetzt werden.

Anti-Discriminatory Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy is a groundbreaking text which identifies the ease with which individuals can be disadvantaged merely on the basis of their gender, race, culture, age, sexuality or ability. Examining these and other areas of discrimination, leading experts highlight how vital it is for counsellors, psychotherapists - and others in the helping professions - to be aware of and engage with their own social, political and cultural attitudes, and how they must develop their skills as culturally sensitive, reflective practitioners if counselling is to be truly accessible to all members of society. This substantially revised and updated second edition now also includes chapters on working within an anti-discriminatory approach with: - refugees - people with mental health difficulties - people with disfigurement or visible differences. While each thought-provoking chapter now: - links theory to practice by providing case studies and extracts from therapeutic dialogues - assesses the most recent research findings - provides exercises for enhancing awareness and skills within each different domain or care setting - presents references for further recommended reading. Clearly written and accessible, Anti-discriminatory Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy is an indispensable addition to the toolkit of everyone either training to be or practising in the counselling and psychotherapeutic professions.

​ „Der Mensch mit abweichendem Verhalten ist ein Mensch, auf den diese Bezeichnung erfolgreich angewandt worden ist; abweichendes Verhalten ist Verhalten, das Menschen als solches bezeichnen“: Es ist einer der klassischen Sätze der Devianzsoziologie in einem der Klassiker des Feldes. Howard S. Becker betont fernab von alten und simplistischen Fragen danach, „warum Menschen Regeln brechen“, welche Situationen und welche Prozesse dazu führen, dass Menschen in Positionen geraten, in denen sie als „Regelbrecher“ betitelt werden, wie sie mit diesen Positionen umgehen und sich auch gegen diese wehren. „Außenseiter“ erschien erstmals 1963 in New York und wurde 1981 bei S. Fischer in deutscher Übersetzung publiziert. Seit den frühen neunziger Jahren vergriffen, liegt hier nun eine von Michael Dellwing überarbeitete und herausgegebene Version vor.

Leben in der Ungewissheit

Wir leben in einer Welt des Übergangs von der "festen" zur "flüssigen" Moderne. Unsicherheit und Ungewissheit prägen den Alltag vieler Menschen, denen ohne stabile gesellschaftliche Formen und Institutionen ein Bezugsrahmen sowohl für ihr Handeln als auch für langfristige Lebenspläne fehlt und die sich gezwungen sehen, ihr Leben aus einer endlosen Abfolge von kurzfristigen Projekten und Episoden zusammenzuflicken. Konzepte wie "Karriere" oder "Fortschritt" können nur noch von wenigen aktiv verfolgt werden, und "in Sicherheit zu leben" bedeutet schon heute vielerorts - vorausgesetzt, man kann es sich leisten -, bewacht zu werden und abgeschottet zu sein von den Wirren der globalen Megacitys, von Armut und dem "menschlichen Abfall". Der renommierte Soziologe Zygmunt Bauman erkundet in diesem Band die endemische Unsicherheit, die unser heutiges Leben formt. In "flüchtigen Zeiten" wird dem Individuum ein sehr hohes Maß an Flexibilität und Anpassungsfähigkeit abverlangt und die permanente Bereitschaft, Taktiken zu ändern, Verpflichtungen und Loyalitäten ohne Bedauern fallenzulassen und Gelegenheiten je nach kurzfristiger Verfügbarkeit zu ergreifen. Leben bedeutet mit der Ungewissheit umzugehen.

Presented in a unique and easy-to-use dictionary format, this practical guide will help your students understand and apply the principles of effective communication. From the ‘how to’, through to practicalities, challenges and honing existing skills, this book will ensure they have the confidence and knowledge to communicate skillfully and successfully in many different contexts and settings.

Anti-Oppressive Social Work Practice is the first text to fully integrate concepts of anti-oppressive practice with generalist practice course content. This comprehensive approach introduces concepts of social justice and offers detailed insight into how those principles intersect with the practice of social work at the micro, mezzo, and macro levels. The book covers ethics, values, and social work theory, and discusses the fundamentals of working with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities. The book also highlights policy and social movement activism and practice within a global context. Maintaining an integrative approach throughout, authors Karen Morgaine and Moshoula Capous-Desyllas effectively bridge the gap between anti-oppressive principles and practice, and offer a practical, comprehensive solution to schools approaching reaccreditation under the mandated CSWE Standards. ? “Provides an important step in the ongoing evolution of generalist practice in social work. It continues a rich tradition [that] challenges the profession to become more and more explicit about the revolutionary aspect of practice.” —Christian Itin, Metropolitan State University of Denver “Offers a fresh perspective of social work practice interventions.” —Terrence Allen, North Carolina Central University
