Anti-Oppressive Social Work with Older Adults
This chapter questions taken-for-granted assumptions in social work practice with older adults. It explores the importance of challenging the notion that older adults are a homogenous group by focusing on the needs of older-adults from equity-seking groups. It also introduces students and practitioners to the principles of anti-oppressive gerontology (AOG) and their application to social work.
