PRACTICE IMPERFECT: REFLECTIONS ON A CAREER IN SOCIAL WORK

Author: Rae Tucker Rambally

Synopsis: This autobiographical work spans a forty-year career in social work in England, Canada and the Caribbean. The author traces her career from welfare officer in post-World War II London, to professional social worker in the Quebec social services, to academic at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill campus. Throughout her journey, she situates the profession within the context of each country, and through a creative blend of information, reflection and analysis she addresses issues that are political, organizational, professional and personal.

Practice Imperfect should resonate with social workers in both the developing and developed countries, and should be an eye-opener for clients, social work students and others in helping professions.
