Groupwork literature and practice theory is largely eurocentric. It does not adequately address the issues facing black groupworkers or the needs of service users from minority communities. In recent years, anti-racist and race equality perspectives have come under attack in some countries.

Race and Groupwork is therefore a much needed text which provides a coherent overview of its subject. The Editors have brought together vivid case studies by front-line practitioners exploring innovative forms of work with black and multiracial groups. Anyone involved in this field will find these chapters truly inspirational.

Chapters on the underlying theoretical and philosophical principals have also been included. Several authors reflect on the inhibiting and oppressive organisational factors which they have encountered, and suggest how agencies could facilitate more sensitive policies.
