Understanding Power

An Imperative for Human Services

The pernicious potential of power to destroy human lives—as still happens for all those groups oppressed by race, poverty, gender, and so on—is the reason we need a clear analysis of how power operates in our world. The editors and authors of this crucial and timely book have done us a great benefit in laying out a roadmap for our consideration on how to understand power in clinical practice.
