About NASW Press

“The author develops the concept of the metaphor as an intellectual tool to guide social workers’ appraisal of public problems and policy debates, as well as a tool to guide social workers in challenging negative stereotypes of policy beneficiaries. He offers productive reconstructions of public problems, ‘victims’ of these problems, and the best strategies for ameliorating the harmful impacts on clients (and others) attempting to meet basic needs and attain well-being.”
