Product Description: ''This book provides a valuable framework from which useful discussion and social action can be developed. It is especially relevant to the issues faced by professionals in the helping and health professions, and could serve to foster greater awareness of global concerns and aims shared by workers in these professions.'' --JOURNAL OF PHENOMENOLOGICAL PSYCHOLOGY

Human Rights and Social Justice: Social Action and Service for the Helping and Health Professions has a unique perspective that views human rights as the bedrock of social justice. It provides a clear blueprint how human rights and social justice concerns can serve as a conceptual framework for policy and practice interventions among the helping and health professions.

"Human rights and social justice is an important contribution to social justice theory and practice. Dr. Wronka presents a solid and sound argument that human rights, as proclaimed in 1948 by the United Nations in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights ought to serve as the foundation for socially just ways of life."

--David G. Gil

Professor, Heller School for Social Policy and Management, Brandeis University

"Brilliantly demonstrates that human rights provides a powerful framework for the helping and health professions. Blending in-depth knowledge of human rights with theory and practice in the helping professions, Wronka presents a comprehensive model to guide actions from global to micro levels, and from professional to personal."

--Lynne M. Healy

Center for International Social Work Studies

"At once accessible and learned, theoretical and practical. Wronka''s groundbreaking text, reflecting comprehensive knowledge melded with a commitment to social action, is worthy of every professional''s library. It should be required reading in schools."

--Janice Wood Wetzel

International Association of Schools of Social Work

If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
