The authors argue that social workers need to understand these phenomena, so that they can become more confident in challenging discriminatory and oppressive practices. The centrality of religion and spiritual beliefs in the lives of many is emphasized, as are their potentially liberating (and potentially negative) impacts. In keeping with the Social Work in Practice series style, the book allows readers to explore issues in depth. It focuses on knowledge transmission and the encouragement of critical reflection on practice. Each chapter is built around real-life case scenarios using a problem-based learning approach.
