About this book

Introduction

Social Work and Housing, written for students and practising social workers, examines an important but hitherto neglected area. Based on analyses of real cases, the book develops understanding of clients' housing circumstances and shows what positive help social workers can provide by integrating the knowledge and skills required with policy and practice analysis. The authors, placing their analysis in the context of feminist and class issues, examine difficulties caused by the condition of housing, its effect on health, the breakdown of relationships between household members and the stigmatisation of clients because of where they live.
