About this book


This important textbook offers clear and concise discussion of the key theoretical and practical issues that sexuality raises for social work. It examines how lesbian and gay politics have impacted on professional knowledge and practice and looks at the questions faced by social workers who identify as lesbian or gay. It discusses the importance of anti-discriminatory practice with lesbian and gay clients in a range of practice settings, looking specifically at work with children and families, vulnerable adults and offenders.
