CSWE Press publishes books and other nonprint resources that address the needs of social work educators in the following areas: the philosophy, theory, and practice of teaching; the process and evaluation of learning; and the organization and structure of social work education. CSWE Press also publishes other materials that explore practice issues as they relate to social work curricula and field work.
The most recently published book from CSWE Press is Confronting Oppression, Restoring Justice: From Policy Analysis to Social Action, 2nd edition. The book examines the forces of oppression and injustice and how social policies, cultural institutions, and prevailing ideologies promote or sustain them. Authors Katherine van Wormer, Laura Kaplan, and Cindy Juby have updated this respected text to ensure relevancy and bring focus to new issues and perspectives while also enhancing areas covered in the first edition.
Two new books are forthcoming from CSWE Press in early 2013:
- The Narrative Edge in Expert Testimony: A Guide for Social Workers, by Ronald K. Bullis, marries narrative theory to the context of expert testimony to show social workers how to make their testimony as expert witnesses accurate, persuasive, and effective. Available February 2013.
- Women and Children First: The Contribtuion of the Children's Bureau to Social Work Education draws parallels between the development of the U.S. Children’s Bureau and the foundations of social work education. Editors Alice Lieberman and Kristine Nelson have drawn together a wealth of information on child welfare over the past 100 years from recognized experts in the field. Available March 2013.
