Thinking and Acting Politically in Social Work Practice is a book that will provide social work students, academics and practitioners a framework for re-politicising social work practice in addressing contemporary challenges. The book elaborates on recent changes to the meaning of politics and identifies some of the political skills needed to act politically in social work practice. The book aims to promote the following political skills for social work practice: unpacking the politics of problem definitions; identifying how power relations operate in specific policy areas; the politics of identity and identity politics; political storytelling; forming political judgments; taking on political commitments; and engaging in political action. It also links the discussion of each of these political skills to specific and current social work practice examples, including social workers dealing with new challenges confronting the world in the 21st Century, such as climate change, increasing numbers of refugees, increasing numbers of people affected by viruses and global changes in the ageing of populations.
