Social Justice in Clinical Practice: A Liberation Health Framework for Social Work Edited by Faculty Member Dawn Belkin Martinez
The Boston University School of Social Work is thrilled to congratulate Dr. Dawn Belkin Martinez on the recently published textbook “Social Justice in Clinical Practice: A Liberation Health Framework for Social Work.” The practical text, co-edited by Martinez, is designed to help social workers incorporate social justice into their clinical work. The text discusses specific population groups and individual case studies, including LGBT communities, mental health illness, violence, addiction, health, and working with ethnic minorities. With case studies, experiential exercises and role plays, readers gain clear and focused ways to integrate liberation health theory into their ongoing work.
Martinez is a half-time faculty member in the Clinical Department at the Boston University School of Social Work as well as a clinical social worker at Boston University Student Health Services. She has extensive experience working with immigrant families and adolescents experiencing new transitions.
