This assignment will focus on the key issues socially, economically and personally for the Hughes family, also the two methods of social work intervention I will use to assist with elevating issues, task-centred practice and crisis intervention. I will endeavour to critically analyse the effectiveness of these approaches and I will then provide an analysis of the similarities between them. Within this assignment I will also discuss anti-discriminative practice and anti-oppressive practice (ADP, AOP) with an overall view to social work practice and how oppression can be addressed.
