HIV-AIDS and Social Work Practice in the Caribbean demonstrates how social workers, working alongside heath care professionals can contribute to the multi-disciplinary intervention in the fight against HIV-AIDS in the Caribbean using the lived experiences of person affected by HIV-AIDS. Using Trinidad and Tobago as the model for the Caribbean, this volume provides relevant, up-to-date information on theory and practice innovation in addressing the psychological needs of persons affected by HIV-AIDS; and how social work can be utilised as a tool of empowerment for dealing with HIV-AIDS. The result of three years' research by scholars of social work, psychology and economics, HIV-AIDS and Social Work Practice in the Caribbean breaks the silence in addressing the psychological implications of HIV-AIDS at the individual, family, community and societal levels and presents a framework and model for promoting social change.

    Making Good Decisions: Law for Social Work Practice

    Price
    56.40 BBD

    What does the law require of social workers when deciding how to intervene to protect children and adults at risk? What social work standards should guide decisions about whether, when and how to invoke statutory powers and duties in practice?
    Making Good Decisions provides an accessible and practical guide to the legal rules and principles that should guide everyday social work practice. It sets out the key elements of administrative law, equality and human rights legislation which shape how social workers practise and illustrates how knowledge and use of legal principles can support core social work goals, including empowerment, equality and social justice. An invaluable reference point for all students and practitioners, this book will support and empower social workers to feel more confident in making and challenging decisions, more credible when presenting assessments and plans, and more creative when working with service users and carers.
    The text is supported by a range of innovative features and boxed information to aid learning and stimulate reflection:
    - Key Case Analysis boxes summarize the details of particular legal cases and outline the implications for social work practice
    - Practice Focus boxes apply legal principles and processes to practice through the use of social work scenarios
    - On-The-Spot Questions reinforce understanding and encourage critical reflection

    Sex, Power and Taboo: Gender & HIV in the Caribbean and Beyond

    In the Caribbean sexuality has never been a topic for public discussion. Previously relegated to theatrical innuendo, musical lyrics and other popular forms of cultural expression, the HIV and AIDS pandemic have now thrown this taboo subject centrestage. The discourse on gender and sexuality is however, still being shaped and this book sets the platform for that discussion. Proceeding from a premise that gender influences sexuality and sexual behaviour, Sex, Power and Taboo provides an interdisciplinary approach to the exploration of how gender affects HIV risk and prevention. The paradigm of HIV and AIDS research is shifted by illuminating the influence of gender ideologies, norms and power relationships on sexuality, and the impact of gender to HIV risk and prevention within and outside of the Caribbean. The contributors are Caribbean and international, and discuss gender and sexuality for the academic, for those in the public health service as well as social policymakers. Sex, Power and Taboo contributes to the research-based interventions to aid the prevention of HIV and AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases and will assist in the design, implementation and evaluation of programmes addressing the AIDS epidemic.

    Understanding and responding to the epidemic of HIV in the Caribbean context requires a multidimensional approach. Drawing together and impressive array of academics, activist scholars, educations specialists and frontline service providers, Sexuality, Social Exclusion and Human Rights examines some of the key drivers of HIV and AIDS by exploring risk, vulnerability, power, culture, sexuality and gender. The primary challenge is first to recognise and come to grips with the circumstances in which HIV is transmitted in order to construct the policies and practices in response. Divided into four sections: Human Rights, Citizenship and Social Exclusion; Rethinking Communication; Reconceptualizing Sex; and Policy and Macro-Perspectives, the contributors to this volume raise controversial issues not formally discussed in the Caribbean context but which require confrontation to arrest the spread of HIV. This volume provides a unique perspective and analysis of the Caribbean response and how the inclusion of many different sectors in society and an interdisciplinary, rather than segregated multidisciplinary approach, can effectively address the spread of HIV and AIDS in the region.

    Simulation for the Social Scientist is a practical textbook on the techniques of building computer simulations to assist understanding of social and economic issues and problems.

    With tourism accounting for approximately thirty percent of the Caribbean's GDP and twenty-four percent of employment, a link between the sex trade and the tourism industry has gained recent attention. Shifts in global production, an increase of disposable income for pleasure and recreation, and a desire by North Americans and Europeans for an experience of 'exotic' cultures, are often claimed to be the cause. This volume explores the connections between the global economy and sex work, focusing on the experiences and views of women, men, and children who sell sex. Apart from attention to sex tourism in Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Barbados, and Jamaica, the book also examines sex work in the gold mining industry in the hinterlands of Suriname and Guyana, and in the entertainment sector in Belize and the Dutch Antilles. It presents new insights into the Caribbean sex trade and provides proposals and strategies for addressing the situation in the twenty-first century.

    Treating Child Sexual Abuse in Family, Group and Clinical Settings: Culturally Intelligent Practice for Caribbean and International Contexts

    Price
    259.25 BBD

    Presenting real-life case studies of child sexual abuse in the Caribbean as a basis for discussing interventions and models of practice that are relevant for a wide range of cultural and social settings, this multi-disciplinary text will be of interest to scholars, professionals and practitioners alike. Contributors to this volume demonstrate how sexual abuse is never just a problem of the individual: structures of inequality and the intersection of the factors they give rise to help to explain why some children are more at risk of abuse than others. Furthermore, the sub-systems in which lives are lived can compound risk and vulnerability or alternatively, can be sources of support and change. This book draws on these ideas to discuss practice across a range of service users: children, adolescent girls, teenage mothers, children with learning disabilities, fathers, mothers, women who abuse, juvenile sex offenders and children in residential care.

    In this sequel to "Rural Development: Putting the last first" Robert Chambers argues that central issues in development have been overlooked, and that many past errors have flowed from domination by those with power.
    Development professionals now need new approaches and methods for interacting, learning and knowing. Through analyzing experience - of past mistakes and myths, and of the continuing methodological revolution of PRA (participatory rural appraisal) - the author points towards solutions.
