Example text

22 Dylan Ronald Tomlinson Thompson notes some similarities between radical social work, in its criticism of the power exercised by the state and by statutory social workers, and the objectives of anti-discriminatory practice, the principal difference being the overturning, within the latter, of the excessive reliance on class analysis that had characterised the former. In noting those similarities, he also draws attention to the fact that achieving anti-discriminatory practice is a long-term goal, and one which is beset by innumerable dif®culties, some of which are discussed as `pitfalls' in his chapter.

Brie¯y, Thompson is concerned with setting out the social origins of each type of discrimination, particularly with regard to the power of ideology, and with enumerating principles for practice to be able to address those forms of discrimination. This enumeration emphasises the importance of social workers taking account of all the aspects of discrimination that may affect individual clients, rather than seeing an individual as `someone from a particular culture' or `someone who is disabled'. With some caution, Thompson also stresses the importance of the contribution of social work to the processes by which clients nurture and develop `positive identities' for themselves.
