Since the earliest days of social work practice, social workers have dealt with environmental issues, advocating alongside diverse populations to address disproportionate environmental impacts on systemically marginalized populations including those living in poverty, populations of color, persons with disabilities, and women. In the face of the accelerating climate crisis, social workers must proactively engage with clients and communities and respond to the growing impacts of environmental injustices.

The American Academy of Social Work and Welfare’s grand challenge to “create social responses to a changing environment” is a call to action for social workers to advocate for environmental justice. The Global Agenda, developed by the International Federation of Social Workers, the International Association of Schools of Social Work, and the International Council on Social Welfare, calls for multilevel responses to concerns such as forced migration, air pollution, ecoanxiety, and food and water insecurity.

Ecosocial Work: Environmental Practice and Advocacy answers that call with chapters that include theoretical frameworks and innovative tools. In this comprehensive text, the authors take a justice-centered approach as they draw on case examples to elevate multicultural and intergenerational perspectives spanning from local to global contexts. The book encourages readers to consider how simultaneously protecting the planet while meeting the historical aims of the profession advances the values and ethical mandates social workers abide by. Designed to foster critical thinking, the book offers hope and possibility for a just environmental future.

This book also highlights the importance of social justice, human rights, and antioppressive values in responding to the diverse experiences of those who are survivors of various environmental disasters. It is clearly written and flowing, so social work students and busy practitioners should be able to follow it without difficulty. It should be on the reading list of every social work curriculum.

Ecosocial Work: Environmental Practice and Advocacy is a pioneering book in social work literature that all social workers will want to read. This book is innovative in that it successfully combines our profession’s beginning and continuing focus on social justice with the broader perspective of environmental justice. In the beginning days of social work when we first worked in settlement houses, we became very aware of the negative effects of economic poverty and thus became advocates for social justice. Over the years we expanded our concerns to fight for BIPOC, LGBTQ, and gender justice. While our mantra has always been person in environment, we first only thought about the environment as a client’s family and community. Now we have expanded our understanding of the environment to include the larger world. And, as always, we have become aware of those who are most disadvantaged in the expanded environment and strive to promote justice for them. Using an ecosocial lens, this book very ably explores social work’s promotion of environmental justice with diverse client groups in different fields of practice.

Chapter 3 defines the concept of environmental racism, by deconstructing and examining the multiple tenets that encompass our understanding of this urgent social work issue in the 21st century. The authors guide the readers in a review of three major components that describe how environmental racism develops: institutionalized environmental racism, personally mediated environmental racism, and internalized environmental racism. The inclusion of specific social work interventions to address environmental racism constitutes a remarkable contribution to be incorporated at the macro, mezzo, and micro levels of practice. The authors discuss several recommendations for social workers to engage in personal and social action to enact antiracist environmental protection.

Chapter 16 examines the conceptualizations and existing research on salutogenic and place attachment models and their use by social workers intervening with refugees and migrants. These models respond to the need to attend mental health distress and lived experiences of trauma by Burmese and other ethnic refugees. Amy E. Stein provides relevant information on global forced migration and the precarious living circumstances of those fleeing home and becoming geopolitically displaced. This chapter introduces the reader to the uprooted–rerooted–planted model as a novel combination of existing models of community gardens and natural setting interventions. This intervention model
is supported by empowerment and cultural competency social work strategies to help refugees experiencing traumatic stress, exacerbated by feelings of being out of place and not belonging to their new resettlement. The incorporation of salutogenesis practices in community settings such as community gardens has been extremely successful in reducing traumatic stress and promoting posttraumatic growth in refugees’ enclaves.

Ecosocial Work: Environmental Practice and Advocacy is engaging, informative, and comprehensive, linking environmental and social justice with climate change. Forbes and Smith elicited chapters that are timely, inclusive, and well organized. The authors highlight and delve into complex intersecting issues while identifying oppression along with hope. Chapters engage in critical analysis of risk cutting across poverty, geography, and intersections of diversity, bringing to light the many lessons we can learn from Indigenous cultures and Black and Brown communities. Each chapter provides roadways to change through the use of models and case studies emphasizing the multiple, intersecting dimensions of environmental and climate degradation while providing us with possibilities for change. It is a read that flows with each chapter expanding our vision so that we see the multidimensionality of what we are facing through voices from the local to the global inclusive of advocacy, community,
and place.

Documented by Puku’i, the Hawaiian ‘Ōlelo No’eau reads: He ali‘i ka ‘āina, he kauwā ke kanaka [The land is a chief, humans are her servant]. As a Native Hawaiian in social work, I am acutely aware that despite the increasingly tangible consequences of climate change, those most impacted by deviations in the environment – namely Indigenous peoples and other communities of color – still routinely face invisibility within discourses on the symbiosis between the environment and one’s health. The essays within Ecosocial Work: Environmental Practice and Advocacy lay essential groundwork that invites us to envision a world that cherishes the environment as a fundamental factor in antiracist, effective, indigenized, and collective wellness. Through exquisite writing and expert research, the reader is invited to partake in the drawing of an essential celestial map for the future of ecosocial work. In sum, Ecosocial Work: Environmental Practice and Advocacy offers a beautifully salient synopsis of how the health and well-being of underserved communities relies closely on the practice of environmentally conscious social work.
