Example text

Bartlett, 1970). ” We argue that expanding the definition of a “social environment” to include a “justice environment” is necessary for achieving positive outcomes consistent with the dual mission of social work. Advancing a Social Justice Systems Perspective The Social and Justice Environments The social environment is often viewed as the place in which person-in-environment interactions occur (Zastrow & Kirst-Ashman, 2004). However, although the social environment is commonly viewed as omnipresent, the justice environment is equally present.

Our foremothers saw that advocating for their “clients” meant advocating for systemic reform, as they collaborated to apply a two-pronged approach to social welfare: individual and social change. This bifurcation of social action weaves throughout the history of forensic social work. In today’s sociolegal environment, the duality becomes a continuum of options for intervention, as social workers offer an integrated approach for clients across diverse settings. Chapter 3 assists social workers with conceptualizing their practice within and across multiple service systems.

Thus, the impact of the law on a client may have positive or negative effects. For example, an individual with disabilities may win a court case for job discrimination based on legal protections inherent in the Americans with Disabilities Act. This is an example of how a law provided positive protections for this individual.
