Summary:
"Social Work Practice with LGBTQIA Populations provides an overview of key issues for social workers working with LGBTQIA clients. Each chapter considers the experiences of LGBTQIA clients in different social and interpersonal contexts. This text encourages students to think critically about the barriers and discriminations LGBTQIA clients might face in their lives and how social workers can be equipped to address these issues. Students are challenged to develop approaches that extend support to these clients and that remove structural barriers that clients face within these systems. Utilizing intersectionality theory, students will gain in understanding of the risks and protective factors unique to this population in social work contexts"-- Provided by publisher.
