About this book
Social Work and the Legacy of Freud reasserts the fundamental importance of the Freudian legacy for human self-understanding and the practice of welfare. The authors address core themes such as the scientific basis of psychoanalysis, its place within a wider social theory, new developments in therapeutic practice and the increasing attention paid to psychoanalysis within contemporary feminism. They then assess the practical applications of psychoanalytic thinking to a range of social work activities.
