Confronting Oppression, Restoring Justice: From Policy Analysis to Social Action
Katherine van Wormer's Confronting Oppression, Restoring Justice examines the twin forces of oppression and injustice and how social policies, cultural institutions, and prevailing ideologies promote or sustain them. Using an internationally informed perspective, she unpacks concepts such as internalization of oppression, injustice, restorative justice, social exclusion, empowerment, and critical consciousness. Readers will find extensive discussion of the skills of critical analysis needed to confront oppression and injustice, backed up by examples of human services programs that successfully deploy strategies of empowerment. -- Provided by publisher
