    Critical Antiracist and Anti-oppressive Perspectives for the Human Services Practicum

    By Narda Razack     January 2002

    This text focuses on field education in social work. It provides a framework and directions for responding to issues relating to racism and oppression. It also examines how power is embedded in every facet of field education from the allocation of resources to the commitment of those engaged in fieldwork. Although focusing on social work, it relates directly to other disciplines where field work is part of the education requirement.
