(p.214) 13 Reflections on Practice (Lessons and Recommendations)
Community Social Work Practice in an Urban Context

Melvin Delgado

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents a synthesis of the lessons learned in undertaking urban-based community capacity-enhancement practice. The rewards, challenges, hopes, and despair that are often associated with practice in urban areas must energize social workers in their quest for economic and social justice for undervalued groups that often face multiple jeopardies in their lives. Recommendations for future work are discussed. These recommendations cover a variety of arenas regarding practice and social work education as a means of bringing these two “worlds” together.

Keywords:   community capacity-enhancement, econimic justice, social justice, undervalued groups, education
