Environmental Social Work by Professor Mel GrayReceive a 20% discount on Environmental Social Work, edited by Mel Gray, University of Newcastle, Australia, John Coates, St Thomas University, Canada, and Tiani Hetherington, Griffith University, Australia.

Often working with an exclusively social understanding of environment, much of the social work profession has overlooked the importance of environmental issues. However, recently, the impact of climate change, a string of natural disasters, and increased understanding of issues around environmental justice has put the environment in the spotlight. 

This field-defining work explores what environmental social work is, and how it can be put into practice. It provides an integrated theoretical and practical overview of why and how social work might respond to environmental factors affecting the societies and people they work with at international, national, local and individual levels.
