Tales of Wayward Girls and Immoral Women: Case Records and the Professionalization of Social Work

כריכה קדמית
University of Illinois Press, 1998 - 260 עמודים
Writing case records was central to the professionalization of social
work, a task that by its very nature "created clients, authorities,
problems, and solutions." In Tales of Wayward Girls and Immoral
Women, Karen W. Tice argues that when early social workers wrote about
their clients they transformed individual biographies into professional
representations. Because the social workers were attuned to the intricacies
of language, case records became focal points for debates on science,
art, representation, objectivity, realism, and gender in public charity
and reform.
Tice uses 150 case records of early practitioners from a number of reform
organizations and considers myriad books on the specifics of case recording
to analyze the competing models of record-keeping, both in the field and
outside it.
"An original and important study, this is the first major work I
know of to carry out a contextual analysis of case records and to discuss
the role case records have played in the development of social work."
-- Leslie Leighninger, author of Social Work, Social Welfare, and American
Society
